Alejandro, 54, is married and has 5 children. He is a carpenter and has a shop where he makes different kinds of furniture like: beds, chairs and windows. He works with his wife and children. They all make wood items that they then go out to sell in places like Quillabamba, Sicuani and here in the city of Cusco at the El Molino Shopping Center. He works from 6am until 10pm. He wants to expand his carpentry shop and is asking for a loan to buy wood and other furniture making supplies.
