Mr Benigno P. is 43 years old, single, and is a carpenter. He has worked for several years in large furniture stores and has gained a lot of experience. He has worked for several years in the ACHON furniture factory, one of the most widely recognised in our country.

With such experience, and a good amount of savings, Benigno has decided to set up his own carpentry workshop. Benigno exclusively produces carved beds and, luckily, business is thriving.

The loan which he is requesting is to diversify the products which he makes, as he wants to start manufacturing wardrobes, bedside tables amongst other things.
