A loan of $725 helped to buy a planing machine and lumber.


Toribia Susana's story

Toribia is 36 years old, married, and has two children ages 5 and 16. She is a client who finds herself in her second sequence with the institution. She lives in the Las Lomas zone and dedicates herself to varnishing, detailing and finishing of chairs. Her workshop is in her own home where she lives with her children and husband, who dedicates himself to carpentry making doors and kitchen cabinets. The loan is destined for the purchase of lumber and a planing machine. Toribia lives in her own home, which is still under construction. In the future, she plans to finish building her home and therefore bring more comfort to her family. The whole family works, supporting each other in the making and selling of the furniture. Over time, she would like to have a larger workshop to be able to employ more laborers and therefore other youngsters will also learn the carpentry trade. Things went very well with the previous loan and, for this reason, she continues investing in her business.
