José Bartolo's story

José Bartolo, 54, is married and lives in Masaya Department. He’s a carpenter with 21 years’ experience but has had his own business for 15 years because he needed to become independent and make himself known in the marketplace. Today, he has his own workshop and a regular clientele. He’s also been honing his skills to such an extent that his products are better made.

He needs to invest in supplies for his business which is why he’s come by the Ceprodel offices to request a loan to buy the following: cedar and laurel wood, sealer, thinner, sandpaper # 40, 80, 100 and 180, white #2 glue, Resistol plastic cement, screws, nails, upholstery foam, upholstery fabric, yellow carpenter’s glue so that he can continue expanding the business, increasing income and improving his and his family’s quality of life.
