Jose Angel's story

José, 55, is a modest man from the city of Grananda. He's married and the father of four adult children.

José's a refrigerator technician by trade and makes a living with a refrigeration shop, a business he started 15 years ago. Before that he worked as a laborer but went out on his own with a shop so he could have his own income. Later he sought his father-in-law's help to fill his customer demand. Currently he has another helper and a prosperous business with high demand from his customers. His goal is to continue giving his customers efficient service.

José's requesting the loan to buy screwdrivers, refrigerator parts, and other things to provide quality service. He thinks the loan will help him grow his business and supply his customers' needs. His plan for the future is to keep running his business longer.
