Juan José's story

Juan José, 21, is a young single man living with his family in the Hamlet of Monte Mercedes, Solalá Municipality and Department. He’s a young man who very much wants to succeed in life and to do so is very enterprising. He carries out a variety of activities. He buys and sells vegetables, something he does in the capital city of Guatemala. His second activity is transporting products from Sololá to the capital city and to do so has a truck. He does these activities because in the first place they are honest and legal and also because they are activities that generate good income to cover family expenses. A third job he has is vehicle repairs (auto mechanics) in his free time. He’s asking for an 8,000 quetzal loan to buy tires and other spare parts his truck needs. He dreams with buying a bigger truck and also to buy a piece of land.
