A loan of $250 helped to buy metal sheets to repair the roof of his home.

José Orlando's story

José, who is 36 years old, is married. His wife does day labor at a farm and takes care of the household tasks. José only managed to go to school through ninth grade. He works in agriculture along with his wife. His wife and their little son depend on him economically.

José has a lot of experience in the work that he does, since he has done it since he was very young. He has had to work very hard, and the only jobs that he has had have been in agriculture.

He will use the loan to buy metal sheets so that he can repair the roof of his house and make other repairs so that his house will be be in good shape for the time when winter arrives, so that his wife and son can have a warm place to live.

José's dream is to be able to have a good house to live in with his family, and when his son is older, for him to have a good education and become a professional. For this reason, he works very hard so that his wife and son don't lack for anything, and he knows that he can do this with the loans that CrediCampo provides him.
