Jose Miguel's story

José Miguel is 22 years old and is single with one son. He lives with his parents in the city of Guaranda, in the Bolívar province.

José Miguel works as a contracted construction worker. He is asking for a loan to buy himself a motorcycle and tools like a hammer, saws, a screwdriver, and a monkey wrench for his work to make it easier for him to travel and for the well-being of his family.

With the help of this loan, he will be able to make more profits for himself to give an education to his son and help out his family. He is usually able to buy his tools in Ventanas.

His dream is to buy a personal vehicle for his sole use and for his family's convenience. His greatest struggles currently are with the bad weather. In his free time he likes to sit quietly, relaxing and watching television.
