Ricardo's story

Ricardo lives in Quelepa in the department of San Miguel. He has a workshop called "Fibras de El Salvador" where he makes furniture made of fiberglass. He is a widower who lives alone; his children have their own homes. From the time that he was very young he worked as an assistant in a workshop. Ten years ago he set up his own workshop where he perfects the craft of working with fiberglass.

He needs a loan to buy resin (a barrel), iron, cylindrical tubes, drafting squares, screws and other supplies. This loan will help him to make a good buy at a price that is lower than usual.

He aspires to grow as a businessman and to have good earnings so that he can make the payments on this loan and also cover his personal expenses.
