Jose Antonio
José is very responsible with his obligations to his household and has always tried to provide his family with the best he can. He currently lives with his wife and son and makes a living in agriculture, sowing corn and beans. When the harvest is ready, José stores his product - which you can see in the photo - in bags so as to later go out to sell it at the basic grains market. With his profit, José manages to cover household costs. José would like to increase his sales and so is applying for a loan. This will allow him to continue to bring home a living.
