José Francisco's story

José is 27 year old and finished his Secondary school studies. He is married and his wife has a small business selling pupusas. José does small scale fishing something he has done for the last two years. He learned this from his parents as it is a common activity in their area. He is also involved in his wife's pupusas sales something he does every evening.

The loan he is requesting is to improve the space where they sell the pupusas and buy drinks and raw materials to make the pupusas. Thanks to the loan they can provide better service to their clients and to the tourists who visit the area. They can also make more income for their family.

José says that he wants to have a large business in the future, educate his children and make improvements on his house. He adds that he can only do this through the loans and through his effort and the profits from his business.
