Fabian's story

Fabian is a young entrepreneur who learned carpentry from his father at a very young age. He began helping his father and later fully dedicating himself to the business, buying machinery and gaining his own customers.

Fabian finished his secondary school studies and decided to work in this field.

To improve upon his woodworking process to bring about higher quality, Fabian requires a loan to purchase an edge banding machine. This will enable him to increase sales and continue supporting his parents so they can a better quality of life.

In addition, little by little he will reach his goal of having his own shop where he can relocate his carpentry business and create jobs.
