A loan of $1,200 helped to buy trupan wood.


Gustavo's story

Gustavo lives in his own house with his wife and their two children. The house was an inheritance from his parents. He makes furniture for bathrooms and kitchens. His shop is at his house. He has ten years of experience, and he works very well with his wife and children. They help him with this business.

His wife leaves the furniture at stores. They like the furniture he makes because his work is detailed. Gustavo also has contracts to install kitchen and bathroom drawers in homes. He is very well-known, and he has a lot of customers.

The loan he was given was to buy “trupan” wood (made from fibers stripped from pine trunks). He has a large contract, but he does not have the material. That is why he requested the loan. He is grateful to the institution for the support they provided.
