Jose Miguel's story

José Miguel is a very hardworking person from Tarija. He is 29 years old, married, and has two little children who are 9 and 2 years old. He takes care of them a lot together with his wife. José Miguel did not go to school due to economic and personal problems, so from a young age he dedicated himself to civil construction as a bricklayer. He has begun to acquire tools for individual work as a contract worker, which brings him a better income, but he need to buy a small mixing machine and some other tools not that he is at the point of beginning another project. For this motive, he is asking for this new loan to make more income and be able to grow economically so he can continue supporting his wife and children, and also so he will be able to save and buy them a plot of land because they currently live with his wive's parents who only support them with the house.
