Porfirio is 55 years old. He lives only with his wife, because his children are all adults and they're all already married. They live in the town of San Lorenzo. He's a carpenter. He has been in this line of work since 2008, and he offers services of furniture repair and manufacturing by order. He needs this loan in order to purchase plywood and formica, because he received and order for kitchen furniture and he wants to carry it out. In the future he wishes to set up a better space where he can operate his carpenter's workshop. Also, he wishes to achieve the capacity to increase his production and offer his furniture to the general public.
