A loan of $175 helped to buy wood to make furniture.

Efrain's story

Efrain, age 41, is married and has five children, ages 7, 13, 16, 20, and 24. Two of them are in school. He lives with his family in Intibucá.

Efrain is a very hard-worker, and he has his own business. He has devoted himself to cabinetmaking for ten years. He makes all types of furniture like doors, tables, chairs, wardrobes, and windows, etc. He works all day at this business activity, and he likes this trade very much.

He started with his own efforts. Little by little he has made his business grow. With the help of the loans he has been able to buy machinery and needed tools.

He is currently requesting his third loan for 3,000 lempiras to buy wood to make furniture.

His goal is to make his business grow and to use the profits to help with his children’s education.
