Francisco has owned his business for more than 30 years. He works from Monday to Saturday during the morning. In the afternoon he helps his daughter, who helps with sales.

He is requesting a loan to buy firewood wholesale, with the goal of having the necessary inventory to fill his customers’ orders. He wants his business to have a strong footing and to provide a better quality of life for his family.
