A loan of $800 helped to buy lumber.

Gene Agustin's story

Gene lives in Portoviejo. He’s 41-years-old and single. He’s a cabinetmaker by profession and has his shop at home. He started the business due to the lack of employment and responding to the recommendation of several people who liked his work. He currently runs it and even has employees who work from 8 to 5 in the afternoon, Monday through Saturday. He will use the loan to buy lumber and supplies to make furniture. He’d like to expand the business and improve his economy this way.
