A loan of $600 helped to purchase clothes for all ages and he needs the rest of the loan for his family's personal expenses.

José Fausto's story

Jose is 29 years old, studied up to high school in his community, and has been in a couple for 8 years. His wife works selling clothes and cosmetics in neighboring communities, and he's a father of two girls of 10 and 2 years of age. Only the older of the two daughters is going to school.

Jose works as a mason's assistant and as a day laborer in the community where he lives. He works in different activities to obtain income and in that way help with household expenses and support his family. Jose goes to work at 5 in the morning and has to walk for 20 minutes to get to the job site where a home is being built. He gets back home at 2 in the afternoon.

He's requesting this loan from Credicampo to invest in the purchase of clothes for all ages and help his wife's clothing business, and he needs the rest of the loan for the family's personal expenses. With this loan his objective is to increase sales and obtain higher income for the household.

Jose's objective is to continue working to pay for his daughter's education, and he also wants to build a home on a plot of land that he inherited from his mother.
