A loan of $800 helped to buy lumber and varnish at wholesale.

Carlos Patricio's story

Carlos, 25, is single living with his sister in Atuntaqui which is 15 minutes from Ibarra in Imbabura Province. Carlos considers himself to be a hardworking, cheerful and supportive person who very much wants to get ahead.

Carlos works alone in the carpentry shop specifically making furniture. This is the second loan he’s requested from Fodemi and he will use it to buy lumber and varnish at wholesale, an investment that will be fruitful for Carlos because it will help him increase production and in future to have good income. His dream is to be able to acquire new machinery since technology continues moving forward; this will help his products be of better quality.
