Pablo Alfredo's story

The borrower's name is Pablo. He is 28 years old, single, and studied forestry at the public university. Currently he lives in his mother's home in the area of Aranjuez towards the north.

Once Pablo received his degree he worked in a firm where he gained experience; this motivated him to open his own consulting business. He partnered with other acquaintances to rent an office in the city and reduce the cost. Every consultant in the office is independent.

The primary services offered by the consultant are the preparation of forest management plans for saw mills, which are twice per month; forestry certificates of origin, which are done three to five times a month; quarterly reports on the saw mills; reports on the harvesting of forest plantations (eucalyptus) that he does three times a month; inspections for CEFO (digital forest certificates), settlements, and others.

The loan he's requesting is to improve his consulting business by purchasing GPS, a computer and furniture. This way he can count on the latest technological tools of the trade to help him with his work.
