Juan Francisco's story

Sr. Juan Francisco G. F. sells firewood and occasionally grows coffee. He has been selling firewood for five years. Juan is married and has two dependent children. With the income generated from his business, he is able to cover his personal and family expenses.

The neighborhood where Sr. G. lives is in a wooded area that experiences cool climate. His business is made possible because the conditions allow him to make good use of the natural resources at his disposal. The sale of firewood is very common in this area because it is needed for domestic use, such as preparing food. It also has commercial uses, since it is used to fuel bakery ovens and coffee dryers.

Sr. Juan wants to stock up on firewood right now because supplies will be limited in the coming months. He wants to be sure that he will have enough product to sell.
