Juan De Dios's story

Juan is 56 years old. At a young age, he had always had a great passion for becoming a furniture maker. Upon becoming an adult, he got a job in this trade, which allowed him to gain knowledge and experience.

Thanks to his dedication, sacrifice, and years of work, Juan became independent and established his own workshop. Today he has worked independently in this trade for the past 30 years. He is satisfied with the development of his business and that it has allowed his family to achieve a better quality of life.

Juan is a man who is full of dreams. One of them is to travel abroad with his wife so that they can visit many places. He would also like to give his young daughter the chance to enroll at the university. In order for these dreams to materialize, he knows that he must have both time and money. For this reason, he is requesting a loan in order to buy wood so that he can increase his sales and generate the income that he needs.
