Henoch is sixty-six years old, is married, and has one son. He has worked as a carpenter since he was fifteen years old; he learned from his father. Before this, he worked in agriculture. He has his own carpenter's shop, and he buys the wood from a place that is fifty minutes away from his house.

The loan that he is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy 250 rods of cedar and Guayacan. In this way, he will be able to meet the demand of his clients, since he already has some orders he needs to fill, for items like bureaus, beds, and chairs. In completing these orders, he will be able to receive the income that allows him to maintain a more comfortable life for his family.

He wants to buy more machines for his workshop and more wood in order to make more items so that his family is not in need of anything.
