José Antonio's story

José is 60 years old and divorced. He lives in Pimampiro which is located 45 minutes from Ibarra, in the north of Ecuador. José describes himself as a hard-working person who always wants to improve himself. José has been working as a builder since he was 18 years old. He sometimes works on jobs by himself but when the jobs are big ones he works together with some friends. He has been working with Fodemi since 2006. José is currently requesting a loan to buy building supplies which he will use in building his house. José's dream is to be able to finish building his house.
