Jose Roberto's story

José, 30, is single and lives with his parents. For a year, he has had a business where he sells staple products and prepared food. He works full time and his mother helps him with both activities. So far, he has not had difficulties and has managed to keep his business running.

He is requesting a loan to invest in his business and offer his customers a better service. He will buy sugar, rice, beans, oil and beverages, among other things, both for the store and to prepare the food he sells. His plan is to expand his business, offer a better service and generate more profits in order to pay back the loan and improve his and his parents’ living conditions.
