Felix has his secondary school education and comes from a hard-working family with good values and good management of their financial resources. He started his work as a carpenter more than 30 years ago. He began as an assistant and little by little he gained experience. He started working for himself having his own equipment which he obtained with his own resources.
Now he is requesting a loan to buy wood planks to do some work with this material himself. He doesn't have any orders right now and doing this he will generate enough income to cover his expenses and improve his living conditions.
