Isidro, 41, lives in the Guasmo neighborhood of Guayaquil, and works in his wood workshop from 8am until 6pm every day.
Before having his own cabinet-making workshop, he worked for a furniture manufacturer, but as his income was not sufficient to support his household, he had to begin working in his house. Gradually he set up a furniture-making workshop in his house, and sold his products to his neighbors. He was able to expand his workshop and now he is a cabinetmaker. He makes chairs, tables, living room sets, etc. In order to continue with his business, he wants to buy wood and adhesive. In the future he wants to buy a machine capacitor to further expand his cabinet-making workshop.
