Jose Antonio's story

Jose Antonio lives with his four children. Two of them are studying and the others already make a contribution to the household expenses. At 61 years of age, Jose is still responsible for the family’s financial situation. For this reason he has set up a small shop in his house, where he sells basic grains, eggs, sweets, candies, soft drinks and other personal hygiene and cleaning products. Due to the family’s financial difficulties, Jose has decided to ask for this loan which will allow him to invest in a new and broader range of merchandise to sell such as drinks, sweets, oil, rice, sugar and other items which will be attractive to his customers. This way he will increase his sales and monthly income so that he can cover his family’s food, housing and educational expenses.
