Jose Leonardo's story

José’s married and has three children who he’s always wanted to provide a good quality of life for. To generate household income to support his family, he has had a carpentry shop for some time since he decided to open his own business. He used to be employed in a carpentry shop and decided to open his own business that he’s managed to move forward with much effort and provide his family with a better quality of life.

Thanks to the good quality of the goods he produces he’s gotten very good orders and this has led to his household’s economic difficulties gradually diminish. Now that he has very good pending customer orders he does not have sufficient capital to respond to them so José is looking for a loan to buy raw materials to fill customer orders and continue generating income.

His dream is to move his shop forward and that it allows him to have a good quality of life for his family and better opportunities for economic progress. He also hopes that his three children will have the opportunity of enrolling in a better quality education and in future have access to the university.
