José's story

José is 52 years old, and single, without children. He comes from a very poor family, which is why from a very early age he saw the necessity of looking for work in order to help his parents and he began at that time to sell lottery tickets. He also, on and off, sells other types of merchandise such as clothes, accessories and fashionable items.

José dreams of having his own home where he can have a place to rest peacefully with the certainty that nobody will kick him out, and this is why he working to achieve it, and why he needs a loan to buy merchandise and lottery tickets for the end of the year when profits increase as sales increase.
