Nelson Ernesto's story

Nelson Ernesto, 40, lives in his own house with his wife and two children who are in school. For Nelson, the family is everything and he struggles daily to provide them with the best. All his life he’s worked hard in a small carpentry shop that he was able to set up at home with much effort. His products are in high demand and it is very important to him that his customers are satisfied. Because of this, Nelson strives to provide a good quality product and provide the customers with the kind of service he deserves. He has noted a small rise in demand recently and, like all enterprising men, does not want this opportunity to go to waste so has decided to request this loan to cover demand which grows daily.

He plans to use the loan to buy wood, nails, metal and the tools needed to work on the products he manufactures. He hopes all this will help him increase sales levels that will lead to high income and thus hope for a better quality of life.
