Jose Maria's story

Jose, 56, is the father of three children who are studying in university. He lives in the city of Leon. He majored in chemistry and used to work for a chemical products business. He was responsible for the laboratory, but the business closed and with the liquidation, he started his business selling cleaning products that he makes using disposable gasoline containers. He has done this business for 5 years, and he uses it to help his children go to school. He goes out to sell his home cleaning products to grocery stores, homes, and businesses.

He needs the loan to purchase sulfuric acid, essential oils, pine oil, soda, and plastic containers. All of these materials are part of the raw materials that he works with daily. In the future, he plans to include new products such as body soaps, soaps for reducing oil, and improve the presentation of his products. The goal is to establish a business selling home cleaning products together with his kids.
