Jose Gabriel's story

José is a young man who was born in Colombia. For reasons of not having employment in this country he moved to Ecuador. He now has Ecuadorian citizenship. He says that in this country he only has a brother who is married so he lives alone in a house that he leases.

He raises livestock and he also works painting cars from place to place. Jose will invest in buying a cow. He is a hard-working young man and he comments that he has a small amount of capital saved and with his two activities he hopes to amass enough to rent a commercial space to open his own business painting cars.
