Jose Manuel's story

Jose Manuel is a client of Kubo Financiero, and this is his story.

Juan Manuel is married and has 5 children. He lives in his own home and makes his living driving a taxi. He also receives a pension.

He is applying for this loan to build a room in his house, since he says his family has grown and they don't have enough space. He comments that he likes to be very responsible with his payments and ask for only what he needs.

He has a taxi that he drives from Monday to Sunday. During his breaks, he likes to go have breakfast and eat lunch at home.

For Juan Manuel, his most significant successes are educating his 5 children and having built his house. Now his challenge is to build some rooms so that his family can have more space.
