Marlon is the owner of a carpentry shop, a business that he learned from a young age with the financial support and help of his father.

His specialty is the production of wardrobes with three sections, which he sells in the popular markets in Managua and other significant cities in the country. His work is of good quality, and his designs are well received.

Currently, the demand for wardrobes has grown over the past few months, so he needs more working capital to acquire raw wood, an indispensable basic material. Therefore, he is asking CEPRODEL for a loan to buy wood, with the objective of buying a greater volume of materials at a lower price.

He is a person with great potential for development, and he is thinking of making other furniture and putting a permanent storefront in one of the most important markets in Managua.
