Jose Samuel's story

Jose has had to overcome great difficulties in life, and that is why his fighting spirit has always been key, and means his children can now continue to have a good quality of life and continue progressing.

Approximately one year ago, Jose’s wife died, and as such he was left a single father to his two children. As he had to generate all the income to support his household alone, Jose made a decision to establish his own business, hence the idea of a restaurant. This was born from the fact that he already had experience having already worked as an employee in these businesses, and since one year ago, he has been working hard to get ahead and overcome the financial troubles he has. Keen to improve the service to his customers, Jose is seeking a loan to buy supplies to prepare dishes and better meet his customers' demands.

Jose's dream is to drive his business on and offer his children a better quality of life at home.
