Francisco Ismael's story

Francisco is 51 years old, he began working from a very young age with his father in a carpentry workshop and he continued with the business.

At present he works everyday with his children’s help. Francisco is married and his wife sells items to different people. The business is hurt a bit by competition since there are many places that do the same work. With the loan he will buy lumber materials to improve his earnings. In the future he wants to finish building his home and to have a fulfilling life with his partner.
