A loan of $650 helped to buy wood.


Melvin Everardo's story

Melvin Everardo is 39 years old. He lives in the town of Gualaco, located in the department of Olancho. He has been working as a carpenter for 22 years and learned the trade from his father.

The business of carpentry in certain seasons is very profitable for Melvin and since he has good customers in this Christmas season they are placing orders.

He is asking for a loan in order to buy wood and thus to have more raw material for his business. Melvin’s greatest desire is to increase his earnings and thus improve the family savings and to improve the premises of his woodworking shop.
