Juan Dario's story

Juan Darío is a 49-year old man who has worked as a cabinetmaker for 15 years now, a profession that he learned from family tradition. He has placed his workshop at home after he was robbed a few years ago. He lost all his working tools then and had to turn to loans to start all over.

His biggest dream is to accredit his business and turn it into a microenterprise that will offer employment to workers in the sector. In order to accomplish this project, Juan is requesting a loan to buy two machines, a circular saw and a woodworking router. These will help him to produce high-quality items and speed up the working process. With this loan, he expects to improve the qualify of life of his family and consolidate his business.
