José Adilman's story

José is 60 years old, married and his life partner is a domestic worker. He has three children but only his grandchildren live with him. Unfortunately he could not attend school. He has been working in agriculture for 42 years, almost all his life. So he has a lot of experience. He learned from his father. He also has cattle which he fattens and sells. He has to walk 1 kilometer to work and works from 4am until 2pm.

The loan he is requesting is to buy a pair of oxen, which will help with the farming chores and save a lot of money. His wish is to continue working in agriculture, raising cattle to generate income and that his wife gets better. She has been sick and has been receiving medical attention.
