Jose Andres's story

Jose is 23 and a very hard worker who aspires to a better lifestyle. He is a fireman by profession. He started out as a volunteer but then was given a contract after some time.

He chose this line of work becaue he likes people. He works either alone or in a team during a 48-hour period, followed by a 24-hour rest, all week long. The risks of the fire can be difficult for him since he sometimes feels like he's suffocating from the smoke and occasionally the fires have enormous flames.

He is requesting a loan to carry out home improvements so he can give his family a better life.

His dream is to see his house finished so he get married and have a child.
