A loan of $1,000 helped to buy 70 meters of sheet steel, 250 bolts, 3 canopies, a gallon of paint, and the rest to pay for labor.


José Antonio's story

José is 34 years old and lives with his wife and two children, one of whom is 6 and the other is 3 months old. For 12 years, he has worked as an electrician, a profession he studied at an institution that offered him the opportunity to learn it. Before that he farmed alongside his father. Once he finished the electrician training, a friend offered him work so that he could practice what he had learned. Then he worked for a telecommunications company and other firms. José's dream is to own his own business; today he works on his own. To buy the materials he needs to do his job, he takes a bus that takes thirty minutes to arrive at his destination.

José is requesting this loan from Fundación Campo to buy 70 meters of sheet steel, 250 bolts, 3 canopies, a gallon of paint, and the rest to pay for labor. With this investment, he will replace the roof of his house because it is in poor condition and leaks a lot in the winter. José says that he will then be able to provide a better, safer home for his family before winter begins. José wants more than anything to give his children a better home, to see them graduate from college, and to have his own business that would be able to employ more people.
