José, 29, has a life partner and two children. He’s a very hardworking man who has worked since childhood. With his effort he was able to help his mother raise his four siblings.

He started working at the age of 12 as a helper in a bakery. When he had learned this occupation well he worked as a baker. He did this job for two years.

At the age of 14 he decided to learn to do auto body repair and auto painting. Since then, this is his source of income. In order to do his customers’ jobs, José has to travel approximately an hour each week to a city to get the materials he needs. He wants to continue forward improving every day so is asking Fundación Campo for a loan to buy supplies and tools (a compressor and paint gun). With this investment, he will be able to do higher quality paint jobs and attract more customers that way.
