Jose Noe's story

Jose Noe has always been characterized as a hardworking person who is dedicated to his family. At 66 years old, he is married and the father of 7 children. He works hard every day, wanting to get his family ahead and offer them a better quality of life.

Jose Noe has worked in recycling for about 16 years. He does this work with his car, with which he transports everything he picks up and later sells.
Jose Noe has found his source of income in this activity, and thanks to it he has been able to cover his family's needs.

Jose Noe finds a great advantage to working with his car, because with it he can transport a large quantity of recycling in fewer runs, with more efficiency than the people who do it on foot or in carts.

Jose Noe has had his car for many years and now it is causing him problems due to mechanical failure. He also has to buy car insurance, because the previous insurance expired. That is why Jose Noe needs capital that he doesn't have right now. He hopes that a loan will afford him the opportunity to be able to buy the vehicle insurance and do the maintenance that his vehicle needs.

Jose Noe dreams of his business generating enough income for him to buy a newer, bigger vehicle and thus be able to transport more recycling. He also has the big dream of his family being able to get ahead and his children accessing a higher quality education and progress financially.
