Jose Antonio's story

José Antonio is a young man of 25 who lives in the Laureles Norte neighborhood, a poor area of Managua. His wife takes care of the household. Together they have two children who are in school and he hopes to be able to pay for them both to finish their studies with his work in construction as a compacter operator. José Antonio is asking for this loan to add a room to his home, which will give his children more space and comfort. He will improve his home little by little this way so his family can be safer.
