A loan of $250 helped to buy wood.


Juan Jose's story

Juan, 51 years old, is originally from Estelí. He is the father of 7 adult children and a businessman. He has made a living through carpentry for over three years. He began working from a very young age by helping others with carpentry, gaining experience on the job. Eventually, he decided to launch his business with his own capital. This has been his first business. He says that with the support of his wife, his expectations are to improve his establishment to increase his sales.

He is requesting the funding to buy wood, all of the raw material needed for the production of his furniture like tables, wardrobes, seats, cabinets, etc., since he estimates that this loan would help him to buy more wood wholesale. His future plans are to establish a carpentry workshop and hire employees that help him with his business. His next goal is to cancel the loan to be able to request another soon.
