Felipe De Jesus's story

Felipe is 46 years old, single, and the father of two children who are 12 and 15 years old respectively. He works as an experienced carpenter by trade. He says he began his work in carpentry when he was very little, and later began to buy tools with the earnings he gained from his work. This was how he decided to make his own carpentry workshop and become independent. He does not have other income, only what his business generates, so he would like to publicize his furniture such as tables, cabinets, wardrobes, and seats in commercial houses from other areas. His expectation is to continue developing his business and to promote his knowledge of furniture to offer his clients a quality product.

Felipe is asking for this loan to buy all of the raw materials he needs, such as wood, paint, sandpaper, varnish, glue, etc. He believes this will help him be able to buy all of the materials he needs in his workshop to produce his furniture. His future plans are to expand and improve his workshop to have a better opportunity for expanding his business.
