Oscar's story

Oscar’s a very hardworking person who has managed to support his family despite the great adversities life has presented him. To generate income needed for his household, he has a business cutting and selling lumber that he learned years ago and thanks to his experience he’s now well-known for the good quality of his work. Due to the great economic difficulties he has and the long processes he must carry out in order to fell trees, Oscar faces great difficulties in his business in order to move forward. However, he works harder every day and gradually his wife and son have been able to enjoy a better quality of life.

Oscar needs a loan to buy a chainsaw to have the needed work tool for an employment position he plans to open in order to respond to customer orders. His dream is to own his own tree farm to harvest and he’s already started it with a small crop of pine trees. He also hopes to have better economic opportunities for his family and a better quality of life.
