Jose Ricardo's story

Jose is divorced and lives with his 30-year-old son, daughter-in-law, and ten-year-old grandson. He manages a store that sells basic staples. He started the store himself 20 years ago. He works attending the store every day of the week, usually by himself.

Jose is requesting this loan in order to buy items such as beans, rice, oil, sugar, toilet paper, and personal items, among other necessary household goods. This will help him to replenish and diversify his store's inventory to be able to satisfy his customers' needs.

His goal is to increase his earnings from this business in order to be able to improve his home and repair the patio to his house.
