A loan of $375 helped buy raw material for his carpintry business.

Gilberto's story

Gilberto Rodríguez has been making furniture from wood for over 25 years. This business is the source of income he has for himself. He is a widower, and his children are grown and have their own families.

He is asking for a loan because he needs raw materials for his business to make the furniture people are ordering. At this time he does not have enough money to buy the material in order to be able to deliver the orders to his customers on time. Delivering on time allows the customers to recommend him to other people.

He plans to repay the loan with the earnings he gets by selling the furniture.
