Jose Ibrahan's story

Jose has a grocery store in his home in which both he and his wife work. He has been working in commerce for more than 7 years. Jose is very well-known in his area by a lot of people. His kindness is special and this has helped him to attract good customers. His customers prefer to buy from him because he is kind when he serves them and also offers them good prices. Jose lives with his daughter-in-law and three grandchildren who are in school. However, they are not dependent on him as his son sends money from the United States to provide for them.

Jose is a good client of Prisma. He started off working as part of a community bank but has now had three individual loans. He has shown himself to be loyal and punctual in making his repayments. Jose will use his loan to invest in his grocery store. He would like to stock his store as the season is improving and so are his sales.
