A loan of $700 helped to buy a car for his business.


Jose Antonio's story

José Antonio, age 49, is from Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas. He is married to Juana, and they have four children who are now married and have their own families. José Antonio has been working in carpentry, bricklaying, and plumbing for over six years. This is the source of income that he has for himself and his wife. He is requesting a loan to buy a car that he needs to be able to go to do jobs at private homes. He wishes to improve the quality of service and to get to his jobs on time so that they can recommend him to other people. This way he will be able to generate more income. The earnings that he gets from his job are to repay the loan because his children will help him with the family expenses.
