Jose Emiliano's story

Thirty-nine-year-old José lives in the south Laureles neighborhood. He has been working in construction for many years, work that has allowed him to support his family, as he is the only one that works to cover the basic expenses. His wife is a homemaker and looks after the well-being of the home. They have three children, the oldest of which is 13 years old, whom they support so that they can study and take care of themselves in the future. The requested loan is to work on the wall surrounding their home, which is covered with old metal sheets. He believes this improvement is necessary and important because it will guarantee his children's safety.
