José's story

José is not married. He lives by himself in the neighborhood Luis Soruco Barba village, in the First of May area. He has worked for 10 years as a taxi driver. José owns his own house that he worked very hard to build himself. For this reason, the construction is uneven in some rooms of the house. The vehicle he works out of is old and needs some maintenance and repairs done. That is why he is requesting this loan. José will use this loan to replace the engine of his vehicle and do some other reparations so that, in this way, he will be able to work in peace, without any mechanical breakdowns. He will be able to work more smoothly, improving his quality of life and increasing his earnings. This will give José financial stability and a better life. His truck is his work partner, and the repairs he does will help him to get ahead.
