A loan of $1,150 helped to buy planks of wood and accessories.


Yao's story

This gentleman did not have an extensive education; very early on he learned to be a carpenter. In 2001, after his training, he opened his own workshop in his area. He makes furniture himself that he sells to his customers. He displays his furniture in front of his workshop to attract the attention of passersby. He has received orders from his customers that he cannot execute because he does not have enough planks of wood; he is thus seeking a loan through WAGES (one of Kiva's field partners) to buy 30 planks and various other materials. He is married and has two children. It is with the income from his business that he provides for his family.
