José Isabel's story

José is 58 years old, married, and has completed school. He lives alone, because his spouse, as well as their two children (who are between 20 and 25) live in the capital, since the children are studying there. José has over 25 years of experience in agriculture. He sows 14 000 square metres of milpa crops, as well as watermelons on the side, and does other kinds of agriculture-related work. He will use the loan to buy a vehicle, which he will use to provide transportation services as well as to sell his produce farther away. He plans to keep working on the land, to sell his produce somewhere else, and to improve his house.
