José María's story

José is 40 years old, is married, and has six children. When he was very young, José started working as a day laborer; with time he took on carpentry and got married. His family is close-knit and they have a good reputation in the community where they live. He used to be a member of the loan committee in his community. José is one of the best carpenters there, and with the income from this activity he can afford his children’s education.

The loan he requested from Fundación Campo is intended to buy 30 cement sacks, 5 iron skids, 3 truckloads of sand, and iron, as well as to pay workers in order to build a house for himself. The loan will help him obtain the amount needed to finish construction. With this loan he can finish building the house so that his family will be more comfortable and safe. His dreams include continuing his home improvements and developing his carpentry workshop by buying more equipment and tools.
