Santos Gilberto's story

Santos lives in the district of La Libertad, in the province of Santa Elena and is married. The oldest of his children is 16 years old, the second is 14, the third is 8, and the youngest is 2. His father taught him the trade of furniture making. Now he makes furniture from Monday to Friday, from 9 in the morning to 5 in the afternoon.

With the loan he will buy paint, wood, a blowtorch, tools, etc. He aims to be able to expand his business, to hire more employees so that the furniture production improves and so that he can give his children a future.
