Sarmento's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase wood to make furniture for sale.
Sarmento is 37 years old. He is married and father of 3 children, 2 of whom are in primary school and one who is not yet in school. He is a carpenter and owns the home where he lives with his family, whom he supports. The loan will be used to purchase wood to make furniture for sale. In the future he hopes to transform his carpentry business into a large-scale furniture producer so he can supply a larger market. His greatest challenge is to pay off his loan on time in order to request additional loans to accelerate his projects.
