A loan of $675 helped buy wood, glue and varnish to develop his carpentry activities.


Rui's story

Rui is single, lives with his parents and is not responsible for anyone else. He's a carpenter by profession and with this loan he plans to buy wood, glue and varnish to develop his activities. In future he intends to build a carpentry workshop from the ground up with all the right equipment. To this end he will periodically pay off his loan as expected in order to be trusted by the Institution for further loans he requires. His greatest challenge is being able to hire the people necessary to start the building work.
