Jose Luis's story

José lives in the city of Quevedo, province of Los Ríos. He is 35 years old and is single. José started working for a relative several years ago in a mechanic's workshop. He was an assistant but he started to like the work and over the years he went off on his own and now he has his own mechanic's workshop. He rented a locale to open his workshop and works Monday through Saturday from 8 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon. With the loan, he will buy tools, oils, engines, etc. His goal is to be able to have a big workshop in his own locale.
