Manuel lives with his family, which consists of his wife and daughter. He is a carpenter. He has been running a workshop for three years. He learned this trade from a young age, and has managed to support his family through the work that his customers bring to him.

He is applying for a loan to buy wood such as cedar, aceituno (paradise tree) and laurel, as well as glue and paint. This is in order to have all the necessary materials in the workshop. This will enable him to improve both his ability to respond to orders, and the quality of his work.

Manuel's ambition is to have more activity in the workshop, and to have more customers visit, so that his income increases.
