Jose Alfredo's story

Jose is forty-four years old and lives in his own home with his wife and four children. He has a store where he sells basic need items, like beans, milk, eggs, bread, and other products. He has had this business for seven years, and it has given him sales experience. This has allowed him to obtain the best profits. The store is located in his home, which is in a well-travelled area. He is well-known among the neighbors in the area, and has gained a lot of customers because his store is well-stocked.

He wants to grow his business and make a new investment, but he needs capital. For this reason, he is requesting a loan. The loan will allow him to buy what is necessary for his store. He is sure that he will pay off the debt, and he trusts that he will be able to give his family a better quality of life.
