A loan of $525 helped to buy wood.


Hector Anelsandro's story

Héctor, 59, is married and has five children. His wife is a homemaker and his children are independent. Héctor is a very kind, honest, hard-working man. Around 30 years ago he began working as an assistant carpenter at an institution that builds bridges to access areas. After a few years he decided to set up his own carpentry shop. Héctor does not have a fixed work schedule for wood door carving. He has two workers who help him make the doors. Héctor will use the loan to buy wood and other materials for his carpentry business. The only problems he faces are the ever rising fuel prices and rising costs of raw materials. His goal is to expand his business to provide better customer service, since his is the only carpentry in the community. He has received four loans from FAMA and has paid them back on time.
