A loan of $800 helped to buy lumber, paint, varnish, nails and sandpaper.


Jose Guillermo's story

José, 35, lives in Jucuapa, Usulután department, with his wife and children who are 12, 8 and 5 years of age and depend on him.
José manufactures wood coffins, a skill he learned from his father. He has worked Monday through Saturday since he was 18 years old.

Today José needs a loan to buy lumber, wood, varnish, nails and sandpaper because these supplies are needed in the coffin making process. The loan will help him have everything he needs thus making it possible for him to do the work and sell to customers.

His wishes are that the business prosper, to continue working better and that his children finish their education so that they can get ahead in life.
