A loan of $800 helped to purchase wood, paint, and varnish.


Jose Guillermo's story

José lives with his family, his wife and three children ages 5, 8, and 12, who depend entirely on him. José is a carpenter making coffins. He learned the work from his father when he was young.

Right now he is requesting a loan to purchase wood, paint, and varnish. This loan will help him to have the materials most often used for making coffins in his carpentry shop, so he can offer his customers better service and get more orders.

His hope is to increase the work in his shop, with a greater amount of materials and an abundance of customers.
