Carlito's story

Carlito is a 51-years-old, married father of five children. He lives in the municipality of Covalima, which is one of the most financially excluded cities in East Timor.

Carlito is a very hard-working man, running a small carpentry business in his village for many years now. He enjoys this business because it allows him to be independent and provide a happy and healthy life for his family.

Carlito is requesting a loan of $1,500 USD to help buy more timber and a new carpentry machine so that he can make more furniture. He hopes to use this loan to continue expanding his business and provide a good life for his family.
