José is 36 years old, married, and has two children. He has always made a living through agricultural work, but for the last four years he has made a living by offering transportation service with a small bus and his wife helps him with a mill for grinding corn which they have in their home. He offers the service to approximately 40 families.
The loan that he is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy a new motor for the mill since the one he has is creating problems and he does not want to quit serving his customers. For this reason, he wishes to change the motor and offer better service to his customers. At the same time he does not want to miss out on receiving this income that greatly helps his family's finances. He plans to construct a galley for making stuffed tortillas.
