A loan of $900 helped to buy wood, plywood, nails, sandpaper, glue, and paint.


Edwin Antonio's story

31-year-old Edwin has made a living from making furniture for several years. He says that he learnt this trade when he began working at a young age in carpentry workshops. He really liked the idea of making furniture. He realised that it was profitable and he made the decision of building his own workshop with the few tools that he could buy with his savings.

Since he received the first loan his life has changed. His production has increased and he has more clients. For this reason he needed to get a new loan. He is very grateful to MiCrédito and Kiva for giving him a hand so he can continue making his workshop more technical by buying new machines. He says that his dream is to become a great businessman; this is a goal that he has set for himself, in addition to having a place where he can display his furniture, which is very beautiful and fine with a special finish.

He is requesting this loan in order to buy wood, plywood, nails, sandpaper, glue, and paint.
