Jose Carlos's story

José makes a living working at an auto-mechanic shop and also sells a variety of products for vehicles. He has had this business for two years. He has learned everything about this business since he was very young. José is married and has two children, one of whom just begun school. With his business he receives enough income to cover his household expenses.

He will buy lubricant, oil, rearview windows, sensors, etc. These are needed to have for sales and fulfill orders that he currently has. He hopes that with this help his business will be more profitable and he will receive greater earnings for his family's expenses, and to pay back the debt he has taken on.

He aspires to have his own locale in order to have greater earnings and offer better service.
