Jose Elmer's story

José Elmer makes a living selling cheese and cream in bulk. He works with his wife; his children are now independent adults. José wants to improve his living conditions and so is applying for a loan in order to replace his roof, which is currently in bad condition, and build a wall. Thanks to this loan, José will be able to move forward with this work by buying materials such as cement, sand, zinc laminate sheeting and purlins.
