José is 36 years old and is married with one son. He learned how to be a barber when he was 6 years old and currently works as one. Before, he worked as a day laborer in the country.
The loan that he is asking for from Fundación Campo is to buy a mirror, a barber’s chair, and to make some improvements to his house. With the loan, he will buy an additional mirror and a barber’s chair so his customers are more comfortable and can better see how their haircuts have turned out. This will satisfy his customers and offer them better service. His wish is to expand his business and have his own house.
Wow! Jose is younger than me!I like that he’s improving his business and has dreams of owning his own house! Go Jose!!
