Jose Manrique's story

José has continued to work both in the sale of seafood and at his car shop. He is requesting a new loan to invest in fresh products such as seafood and fish, and also to invest in spare vehicle parts, such as bulbs and spark plugs, among other accessories that will allow him to keep working as a mechanic. He believes that he has been working a lot these past months and this has given financial ease to his family.

The previous loan had a positive effect on him as it allowed him to have the necessary resources to do a good job. In his family, everyone is doing well. However, José feels that the profits from his businesses have been falling. This has given him the initiative to invest more time in the sale of seafood, which will allow him to increase his income.
