A loan of $700 helped to buy wood and other materials for furniture making.

Juan Diego's story

Juan Diego is the father of two children. He works in carpentry, specifically in making furniture, a business that generates his only family income. Juan Diego's furniture and designs have attracted many customers, and so he needs to buy more wood, varnishes, paints, and other materials to continue with his projects. The loan that he is applying for is for 350,000 colones. With this money he will buy these materials and he will forge ahead until he reaches his goal, which is to offer his products in businesses in the capital.
