Jose Mario's story

José, 41, lives with his family in his father's house. For 15 years he has run a store in his home. He has a lot of customers because he keeps his business stocked and people always find what they are looking for. With the profits from his sales he is able to cover some of the costs of his home. José is asking for a loan to buy more merchandise like basic grains, oil, snacks, sugar, shampoo, etc so that he can earn more money to give his family a better quality of life.
