Benjamin's story

Benjamin is 46 years old and is very well known as a carpenter in the Villarrica area. He works making doors, windows, frames, and a variety of furniture. He began doing this more than five years ago, with the help of his wife. He works with his son, 20 year old Walter Gustavo. He owns the carpentry business and runs it from his home in the city of Villarrica, in the department of Guairá.


He is requesting this loan to buy raw materials, especially wood and supplies such as nails and sandpaper. He also wants to take advantage of an offer available with regard to the wood, and with these materials and tools he will be able to improve the quality of his products and so increase his income.
