Jose Wilfredo's story

José sells a variety of clothing. He's a home-loving person and lives with his parents. At the moment is separated from his wife. He also lives with a sister. He was working previously as a bricklayer and farmer, and nowadays he is selling a variety of clothing. His most important sales are to people in the rural area. Now he wants to invest in his business to improve variety. He is requesting a loan to enable him to buy pants, shirts, blouses and skirts; in this way improving the business with more products, and articles of clothing in different styles. This will help him to increase his sales. His risk in the business is competition from merchants that would result in a drop in sales. José's goal is to set up a business in a shop, and supply it with a variety of clothing. He will be helping his family, and will also succeed in his plans to build his home and continue going to school.
