José Albeiro's story

José Alberto, 63, is a man who has had to work since he was a little boy because of his family’s economic situation. At the age of 12 he started out as a helper in his father’s butcher shop and he learned the occupation there. Later on, he decided to open his own business going into it full-time working from 8am until 7pm.

José has two children who are 10 and 8 years old who he hopes to provide with a better future giving them the opportunity of attending school in order to improve their quality of life. His greatest dream is to expand the business and his installed capacity which is why he’s asking for a loan he intends to use to make changes to the cold storage room and physical improvements to the shop.
