A loan of $1,275 helped to buy wood, cement, and materials to be able to work.

Victor Fidel's story

Victor has a carpentry shop at his house on Isla Trinitaria. He has been in a cooperative for a short time, and his house is his own. With great effort and dedication he has maintained the family business because in the beginning it was his father’s.

He likes this business activity, and when he has orders it is very profitable. The only thing he needs is wood and his boundless imagination in order to create furniture and comfortable assignments.

He works in his shop from nine in the morning until five in the afternoon. He works with his son, who also likes the business activity. The biggest difficulty he faces is the climate. When it rains the streets, which are not paved, make it difficult to transport his pieces.

He will use the loan he is requesting to buy wood, cement, and materials to be able to work. In the future he would like to build a second floor on the lower lever and expand his shop with the purchase of another machine.
