José Porfirio's story

José Porfirio lives in Masaya, a city that is rich in art and folklore. He is thirty-one years old and is a painter by profession. He is married and is responsible for supporting his wife and young son.

His business consists of painting various landscapes in all sizes. He has seventeen years of experience in this, which has enabled him to acquire a great deal of skill. He sells his paintings in the artists' market, the municipal market and various other markets. As a distinguished artist, his paintings have been shown as far away as Holland.

He is seeking a loan in order to buy materials such as canvas, oil paints in green, blue, red, black, purple, white, yellow; matte paint; and frames in the sizes 15" x 30", 20" x 34" and 28" x 45".

He believes that this loan will help him to optimize his income and that it will help him to improve the standard of living for his family, who depend on him.
