A loan of $1,275 helped to buy wood and supplies.


Alcides's story

Alcides is 28 years old and his companion is Sandra, aged 24, and they have one child, for whom he always fights with all his strength. Alcides began working as a carpenter more than five years ago, in 2007. He began his work as an apprentice carpenter in someone else's workshop, and for a long time he was working in this way. Finally, with the help of his father and the money they got together, he was able to move forward. The loan he is asking is for buying wood and materials that he wants to use to finish the requests he has from his customers. He is thankful for the help he is being given, since it will be very beneficial.
