A loan helped to buy boards, wedges, triples, paint, nails and varnish, among other things.


Jose Artemio's story

Artemio is a hardworking man who is 33 years old and lives with his family in the neighborhood La Paz al Sur in the city of Tulcán. He has two beautiful daughters whom he loves and protects with his whole being since he is a single father. He fights to help his household get ahead because he never wants his daughters to lack anything.

Artemio works hard in his carpenter's workshop making dressers, living room furniture and beds, as well as other furniture items. In this way he generates the necessary income to cover the expenses of his humble home.

Thanks to the quality of his work and good finishes the demand for his work has increased which has brought Artemio more income.

As a result, Artemio is requesting a loan to purchase boards, wedges, triples, paint, nails, varnish and sandpaper, among other items, so that he has enough raw materials to carry out the work that has been commissioned on time and maintain its quality.
