Francisco's story

Francisco L. A. lives in the department of Ahuachapán together with his wife and their son. Francisco is 46 years old and is dedicated to his business, which is a metals and carpentry workshop. Francisco produces furniture for every room including dining sets and sells all of this himself. Clients come to Francisco's business to buy furniture sets and Francisco offers them easy forms of payment, which is where Francisco sees a strong niche for his business and why he is inclined to add more of this type of products to a warehouse and still offer ease of payment. This is the dream of this man, that his business grows and that he may be able to have a larger inventory for display, but for the moment, he is requesting a loan because his clients have requested a great quantity of furniture and he does not have the raw materials to make it all.
