Jose Geovanny's story

José is 31 years old. He is in a common-law marriage and lives with his wife and son in Tocoa, Colón. For six years now he has rented a space in the market where he has his own business selling new clothing, such as pants, dresses, blouses, T-shirts, footwear, “fajas” [girdles] and hats, as well as CDs and radios. He has always worked in sales. José also has a food sales business that is run by his wife.

José is requesting this loan of 30,000 HNL to buy shoes, caps and clothing for women, men and children, to increase his inventory. This is his ninth loan cycle with the field partner. José’s goal is to be able to buy a vehicle to use in his business.
