Micaela's story

Mrs. Micaela is a single mother of four children; three of them attend school. She could not study herself.

Micaela sells firewood. She started this business because she needed to have an income to pay for her expenses and support her family. She has twenty-three years of experience.

She is requesting a loan to buy big lumbers in order to extract the wood she sells. She hopes to be able to continue working and in the future, she wants to have a warehouse to store different types of wood and to sell dimensional lumbers, tongue and groove lumbers and frames, among other things.
