Seven years ago he established his own workshop where he makes all kinds of furniture from all kinds of wood. He makes kitchen furniture, room dividers, dining room sets, doors, decorations, living room furniture, etc.

The loan he requested is for 15,000 lempiras and he will use it to buy primary materials for furniture making as well as a portion to remodel and expand his workshop. He will repair the floor, roof and walls in order to offer better service and work more comfortably. His plan is to continue growing his business so that he can give his children a good education.
