A loan of $800 helped to buy pine and ceder wood to make furniture.


Jose Ovidio's story

Jose is requesting a new loan to enable him to invest in the purchase of wood to utilize in his carpentry. Especially important in this purchase is ceder and pine wood, which he utilizes to make furniture. This loan will give him the necessary economic resources to maintain his workshop with an ample level of prime materials and thus meet his customers' demands. Jose's previous loan provided him with better conditions for his carpentry work. He was able to buy the tools that he now uses to make furniture. This has motivated Jose to continue working, maintaining a good level of production, to be able to expand his business.
