Jose Elmer's story

José Elmer’s highest level of education was completed secondary school. His current business is mobile phone sales. His wife works selling cheese and cream to order to grocery stores and this way they both support each other economically to cover their costs. Their children are adults and work in a tax-free zone. Sadly, he lost one of his children and overcoming this loss was very difficult for him but in time he’s managed to overcome the pain although it’s always present in the background. Like all hardworking men he’s opted for a loan to make some home improvements. He will install tile and windows his house still needs. He will buy tile, cement, glass louvers and aluminum frames thanks to the loan repayable in installments he’ll be granted.
