Bolivar's Group's story

Bolivar is 65 years old and lives near Otavalo, Ecuador. He is single and lives with his 19-year-old son. Bolivar is a calm person who likes to work. His business is a small carpentry workshop. When he was 20 years old, he began his work in carpentry. He learned his craft little by little and really enjoyed it. It allowed him to support his family and build his own house. Now, Bolivar works alongside a nephew. Bolivar will use this loan to purchase raw materials including wood, boards, and paint to make furniture. This is Bolivar’s first loan and he will be able to buy more material at lower costs thanks to the loan. Bolivar’s dream is to see his son finish school.
