A loan of $1,500 helped to buy a table saw to sand pieces and to buy wood with the remaining money.

María Isabel's story

María is 63 years old. She is married and has one child. She has been working as a carpenter for the past fourteen years. She taught herself watching other people and then she started to practice. She was only a housewife before starting this work.

The loan that she is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy a table saw to sand pieces. With the remaining money she will buy wood. She will be able to make furniture more quickly when she buys the saw, raising her customers’ level of satisfaction, and she will be able to make more pieces for sale. This work is the only source of income for her family. Her aim is to build a bigger shed where she can set up her carpentry workshop.
