Mr. Erasmo Gonzalo T. G. has a small carpentry workshop in the village of Sacala de las Lomas, located in the San Martin Jilotepeque municipality. For more than three years he has dedicated himself to making traditional crafts out of wood, which he sells from his house or on order.



Erasmo Gonzalo is married, and his wife works as a nurse. They have two children and, thanks to his business, he is getting ahead. He is seeking a loan because he needs to buy more raw materials given that the price of lumber has increased substantially.
