José Luís
José is 33 years old and single, and he lives with his mother and two siblings. He is a construction worker and has a contract on a construction project. He is also a farmer, a trade which he learned from his father, who bequeathed him a piece of land for him to cultivate.

The loan that he is applying for from Fundación Campo is to buy tiles for the roof of his house, as some are broken, to buy agrochemicals for growing corn, and to pay off an outstanding debt with the institution. With this investment he will improve his home, which has a lot of problems with water leakage. His hope is to buy some pigs to raise.
