A loan of $1,000 helped to buy wood.


Marvin Alberto's story

Marvín lives with his wife and three children, ages 15, 12, and 7. He sells sawn lumber, and has been in business for 15 years. He works with various carpentry shops, selling them wood.

Currently, he is interested in buying wood in order to continue supplying carpentry shops, as he has several orders, and wants to take advantage of the sales opportunity.

Through the loan, he hopes to be able to undertake this investment, which will help him win customers and earn money. Marvín's ambition is to have greater recognition on the part of customers, to grow in the area; and be able to ensure a better future for his family, and provide them stability.
