A loan of $1,200 helped to buy wood.

Norberto's story

Norberto Terán R., 51, lives alone with his 4 children. He works every day in his carpentry shop making furniture (tables, chairs, armoires, doors and windows).

Norberto lives in Colomi, an area along the Cbba-Santa Cruz highway; his shop is in his home. His home is also his store. He also makes items to order. He is well-known in the area for the work he does and for being a very hard-working person, who delivers his completed orders on time.

He will use the funds to buy wood for his shop. Wood has gone up in price and what he had planned to spend now isn’t enough. He hopes to increase his supply of wood so that he can make more furniture. A future loan will make it possible for him to earn enough to make improvements to his home and quality of life.
