A loan of $1,500 helped to buy wood for his carpentry workshop.

Juan Pablo's story

Juan Pablo is separated. His wife left him with his little daughter, only four years old. They live together in the Guapuru 2 neighborhood in the city of Santa Cruz. He works in his carpentry workshop making doors, window frames, and other jobs in general.

The purpose of the loan is to buy wood, because he wants to increase the quantity of wood to be able to produce a little more. In this way he will improve the quality of life for himself and his young daughter. Juan tells us that he works every day with his daughter in his carpentry workshop.

He cannot buy this material he needs because his income is just right for his daily expenses. For this reason he does not have the money right now. The opportunity came up to buy wood wholesale at a low price. This will be a big help to him because he will have accumulated material for work.

Among his dreams and goals are seeing his daughter in the future with a professional career so she can have a better standard of living, and expanding his small carpentry workshop.
