Marvin Fransisco
Marvin Francisco C. Arteaga is 45 years old and has a carpentry workshop. He has dedicated himself to this type of work for more than 15 years, which he started with just a few tools such as a saw, a hammer and a plane. He currently has workers in his workshop. Marvin requests this loan to buy a circular saw, with all the safety features, that would allow him to finish and deliver his wood products faster. Each of Marvin’s pieces is made to order. Marvin aspires to get ahead with this business, given that it has helped him improve his quality of life. His wishes are that his children become career professionals and have opportunities that he was not able to have.
