Santos Jeremías's story

Santos, 23, is a young single man living with his family in the settlement of Xecampana (“Under the Bell” in Cakchiquel tongue), Santa Catarina Ixtahuacan Municipality, Sololá Department.

For lack of family resources, Santos decided to start working to help with expenses which is why he learned carpentry. He manufactures tables, chairs, armoires, windows and many other things too. He’s been doing this for three years now and it’s work that he enjoys very much while at the same time it generates good income that helps him to his parents with expenses.

He’s asking for a 5,000 quetzal loan to buy wood to make more furniture. He dreams with growing in the carpentry field and to expand the business. In addition, he wants to provide better customer service.
