A loan of $500 helped to purchase wood and complete more carpentry work.


Carlos Ovidio's story

Carlos lives with his wife and two minor children. They both work: Carlos' wife is a street vendor selling fruit and vegetables, and Carlos has his own carpentry shop. They are both very hardworking and responsible. Carlos makes different items out of wood, such as closets, tables, chairs, and other funiture. Some of them he makes to fulfill a particular order from a customer, and others to sell at his shop, which brings in extra earnings and a high profit.

Carlos is requesting a loan so that he can move his business another step forward, by obtaining more raw material to do his work. This will allow him to accept more orders and also make more furniture to sell at his shop.
