A loan of $700 helped to buy wood and adhesive.

Isidro Hipolito's story

Isidro, 41, lives in the Guasmo neighborhood of Guayaquil, and works in his wood workshop from 8am until 6pm every day.

Before having his own cabinet-making workshop, he worked for a furniture manufacturer, but as his income was not sufficient to support his household, he had to begin working in his house. Gradually he set up a furniture-making workshop in his house, and sold his products to his neighbors. He was able to expand his workshop and now he is a cabinetmaker. He makes chairs, tables, living room sets, etc. In order to continue with his business, he wants to buy wood and adhesive. In the future he wants to buy a machine capacitor to further expand his cabinet-making workshop.
