Noel De Jesus's story

Noel is 49 years old. He lives alone. He was born in Nicaragua but now he lives in El Salvador. He has a workshop for carpentry and wood handicrafts. He learned this trade from his father and he does it full time. He has 25 years of experience. The loan that he is applying for will allow him to buy wood to begin making handicrafts. This investment will help him increase his income. His dream is to expand his workshop and acquire the equipment necessary to increase production.
