A loan of $875 helped wood, paint and tools etc.

Wilmer Alberto's story

Wilmer is 28 years old, married and has two children who are 8 and 1 years old. His wife is head of the house. He owns a cabinetmaker's workshop. He learned his profession from his father who was also a carpenter and his father was the one who taught him. After some time, he began to like the idea of having his own workshop and it is there where he makes shelves and beds. He works alongside an employee that he hires to work Monday to Saturday from 8am to 5pm. With the loan, Wilmer wants to purchase wood, paint, tools, etc. His goal is to have a bigger workshop because he would be able to have a larger production there and he would be able to get more work and give an opportunity to work to more people.
