Josué Elmer's story

Josué is a 24-year-old young man who was only able to stay in school until the 4th grade. He is married and his wife stays at home rather than work. Their children live with him and haven't yet reached the age to go to school

He works selling bread using his motorcycle and has been doing it for 3 years. The loan that he is asking for is to repair his motorcycle which needs new parts and new tires, improve the basket that he uses to tie up his bread, and repair the roof of his house.

His dream is to put his children through school, since he didn't have the opportunity to do so. He also wants to build a proper house so his family can be better off and safer.
