A loan of $800 helped to repair the family vehicle.

José Raúl's story

José, 35, completed his high school studies. He's married and has had one child who's already 5 years old and attending school. His wife is a homemaker and also takes care of their son and her mother.

José works in health as an ambulance driver. He has five years of experience in this job. To get to work he travels about three kilometers by bicycle every day. His schedule is from 7 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon one month, and from 6 in the evening until 8 in the morning the next.

The loan will be invested in repairing José's vehicle. It needs an adjustment and it's necessary to keep it in good condition to avoid mechanical failures and to guarantee his family's safety.

José's personal goal is to set up an auto repair shop. He has enjoyed this work since he was a child. He also wants his son to have a professional degree so he can enjoy a lifestyle that he didn't have.
