Alfonso Wilson
Alonso is 59 years old and lives in Libertad. He started in this line of work as a young man because his parents taught him this business. Alonso worked as an assistant at a workshop in Guayaquil, but later decided to start his own business on the peninsula of Santa Elena.

He goes about his work with the help of God. Alonso works every day from 8:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. His business enables him to help his family move forward each day. His main difficulty is the lack of financing. Alonso is married and his wife devotes her time to the household chores. They have two children who are studying at a state school.

With this loan, Alonso will buy wood for making more furniture. He can now fulfill his dream of having a furniture shop so that he can generate more income and pay for his household expenses.
