Jose Omar's story

José lives with his family which consists of his wife and two children. He works in his business which is selling basic staples and providing milling services. He sells snacks, basic grains and pills. He’s run the mill for five years. He works Monday through Sunday from 6 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon. He learned this job from his father who was a merchant.

He’s asked for a loan to invest in maintenance and repair of the mil; he will use 50% of it for this and the rest to buy merchandise to add to his stock. He will buy snacks, cookies, soft-drinks, juices and detergent, for example.

This loan will help him provide better milling service problem-free and also to stock his store. His hope is to have more customers in order to earn higher income to help his family and above all his parents who are elderly and he helps giving them part of his income.
