Rómulo
View original language description ↓
Rómulo is an exemplary and hard working father of 32 years. Since he was 5 years old he has dedicated himself to carpentry in the small workshop he has with his wife Felipa. With the small amount of saved money that they have, Rómulo has decided to dedicate himself to sculpturing, owing to the fact that he has an excellent ability to work wood and form beautiful figures. His great works are granting Rómulo satisfaction and good economic income, thus allowing him to offer a better quality of life to his beloved son Frank and his lovely wife, who supports him unconditionally in his endeavors. To realize his plans Rómulo requests a loan that will allow him to obtain raw material (wood) in great quantities. Let us support this head of family so that he can keep on artistically forming the dreams of his family.
