Jorge Ramiro
Jorge is a person who enjoys working and doing things well. He lives with his wife and two children in Pimampiro which is located half an hour from Ibarra in Imbabura Province. Jorge has been working for 28 years in his small carpentry shop.

This is his first loan from Fodemi, which he is going to invest in purchasing new machinery and wood in order to build furniture. Due to the holiday season, he has had several orders and he needs to increase his production in order to earn a good income so that he can provide an education for his children and cover household necessities.

Jorge’s dream is to be able to finish building his house and to increase the new technology in his shop.
