Jose Del Carmen's story

Don José is a taxi driver. He and his wife look for ways to get ahead for their children, who are studying at public schools. In order to maintain his financial standing, José continues to work as a taxi driver while his wife is a homemaker. All of them are dependent on Don José, which is a difficult situation because of the rate of unemployment.

He continues to be in need of home improvements. On this occasion, he will tile the floor and replace the roof before the arrival of the rainy season. For this reason, he is requesting a loan in order to buy construction materials.
