A loan of $1,100 helped to buy tools and materials for his carpentry shop.


Oscar Rene's story

Oscar lives with his wife and their three children who are 21-, 18- and 14-years old, respectively. He is a carpenter and makes furniture, some to order and some for general sale. He operates the shop from a space in his house.
Oscar is applying for a loan that he will use to buy tools and materials--olive, laurel and cedar wood--that he needs for the business. The investment will allow him to attract more customers.
Oscar wants to improve his carpentry shop and, in turn, his family's quality of life.
