A loan of $425 helped to buy laurel and Guanacaste wood.


Juan Inocente's story

Juan is a microbusiness owner who crafts wooden furniture such as beds, closets, and rocking chairs. He has had this job for 11 years.

Before having his own business he was a construction worker where he learned to build houses and do carpentry work. Thanks to his ability in handicrafts he decided to buy tools to start his own business where he currently has customers whom he personally attends.

His business has grown, but nonetheless requires financing for working capital to address the demand for furniture, especially for beds made of wood.

He is an enterprising person with high potential for growth as a microbusiness owner.
