Marlon Jose's story

Marlon is 38 years old, married, and has a 12 year old child. He and his family live in the city of Granada. Marlon has worked making furniture for 25 years. He started as an assistant in a workshop close to his home and little by little acquired experience from learning to cut, clean, and sand the wood to being able to make different types of furniture. Currently he has his own small workshop where he has two assistants who help him fulfill the orders.

He is requesting this loan to purchase wood, glue, paint, paint thinner, and sandpaper to finish the wood. This loan will allow him to have materials to make the orders he has for doors and windows. He wants to expand his workshop to give employment to more young people who wants to learn just like how he started.
