Carlos Ernesto
Carlos Ernesto is 29 years old, and lives with his life partner and children in their own home. He has a carpentry shop in his house where he makes tables, chairs, furniture and other items. Recently, he has expanded his customer base, since he does high quality work that is tailored to the preferences of each client. He sells his products at reasonable prices, offers excellent service, and is always available to talk to customers with a smile on his face.

Carlos is very dedicated to his work and craftsmanship, and he has many goals for getting ahead. He believes that people do not need to settle for living chained down if they feel the desire to fly. He has discovered the craft that gives him wings, and is therefore requesting a loan from INTEGRAL, which will allow him to purchase wood in bulk as well as tools for his carpentry business. Carlos Ernesto has faith that this will enable him to offer his family a full and happy life.
