A loan helped to purchase wood, nails, hinges, paint, varnish and a new cutting machine.


Jose Anibal's story

José lives in the city of El Angel, in a humble and small house that his parents left as inheritance for the three brothers. José works as a carpenter, a trade which he learned from his father who was in the same line of work.

José is separated from his partner, with whom he has a two year-old daughter. He has not forgotten the responsibility of being a father, and he supports his daughter in any way he can.

Lately, carpentry work has decreased, so José is planning to build furniture and set-up a warehouse where he can exhibit his work in wood.

José needs the support of creditors in order to purchase wood, nails, hinges, paint, varnish, and a new cutting machine. With this loan, he will be able to purchase all of these materials and kick-off his entrepreneurial spirit, in hopes of improving his economic situation.
