José lives in a settlement in the north side of Guayaquil city. He is 33 years old, married and has 4 children who are all studying in a state school. José inherited the family business. His parents had previously owned a shop but now he has set up on his own together with his wife selling basic foods. José works everyday from Monday to Sunday from 6am to 10pm and his wife helps him run the business. His objective is to expand his business, with God's help, and give his family a better quality of life. With this loan he will buy meat, convenience store goods and basic staple foods.
