Elmer Elenilson's story

Elmer works selling wood and used vehicles. He lives with his wife and two children. His children depend on him economically. He learned from his brother, who has a carpentry shop. In order to be able to sell wood, he has it in the house he lives in. His schedule is flexible depending on the needs of his customers.

Currently he is asking for a loan for the purchase of wood such as cedar, olive, and pine, among other varieties that exist and that could be demanded by his clients. This loan will help him by giving him the economic resources to buy necessary merchandise and keep working.

His aspiration is to have a successful business, increase his client base and live in better economic condition with his family.
