A loan of $700 helped purchase carpentry tools.


Edra Elias's story

Edra is a young carpenter. He is 20 years old, single, and lives with his parents in the town of Perquín in the department of Morazán. His father taught him about the business, and for the last six years, he has worked as a carpenter. He works building tables, beds, dressers, toy boxes, and wardrobes. He doesn't have set work hours. He currently needs a machine that will help his work, so he is asking for this loan to purchase tools that will improve and speed up his production. His dream is to own his own home with the help of his workshop, and he hopes to keep earning more income to support his family.
