Santos Eulogio's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy wicker, solder, iron, wood, and tapestries.

Santos Eulogio's story

Santos Eulogio is 70 years old. He is a widower, and he has seven adult children who are independent. He lives in the canton of Montecristi. This place is known for its rich, pre-colonial architecture and for its handicrafts, which are recognized nationally and internationally.

From a young age, Santos has done work that he likes from his tiny furniture workshop. He's had longstanding customers, and they place orders in advance. His children help him with the work. He has his furniture workshop at the home of one of his children who keeps on eye on the work. He comments that what sells best is the well-known wicker furniture. These are exported and others are taken to other provinces where his distributors are.

With this new loan, he will buy wicker, solder, iron, wood, tapestries, etc. His dream is to have a larger workshop and provide work to many people.
