Juan Carlos's story

Juan, 30, is single and lives in the city of Estelí. He has a workshop at home, where he works as a carpenter. He started this activity supported by his brother, who lives abroad and has helped him to establish his workshop. Juan employs two assistants that help him to cut and paint the wood. He makes furniture, and he is very good at it.

Juan is requesting a loan to install an electric control system (circuit breakers and cables). His goals for the future are to have a full-running workshop with all the equipment in place. His short term goal is to install the electric control system.
