Alberto Jose's story

Alberto is 53 years old and lives in the city of Estelí. He is married and works as a carpenter by trade. Alberto used to own a bakery and then started working as an assistant for other people. Later he decided to establish his own business, so his son helped him with buying machines in order to make his products. At the moment, Alberto produces furniture such as chairs, dining sets, wardrobes, and cabinets.

He is requesting a loan so that he can buy raw materials such as paint, sandpaper, varnish, glue, and other supplies. Alberto believes this loan will be of great help since he will be able to invest in his business and provide his customers a quality product. His future plans include expanding his business and improving the infrastructure of his workshop.
