Josue Noe's story

For the past five years, Josué has operated an upholstery shop where he does restoration of furniture, vehicles, and motorcycles. His work schedule is from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. One advantage that he has is that the quality of his work is recognized, so he already has a group of established customers. Josué said that he learned the trade from his father. The income he generates is used to pay for his personal expenses and it allows him to contribute toward the household expenses. Josué is single and lives with his parents.

He will invest in the purchase of foam, fabrics, glue, staples, nails, and other needed materials so that he can continue his work and keep his customers satisfied. With the new income he expects to generate, Josué can improve his lifestyle and submit his payments on time.

His dream is to expand his business so that he can become totally independent and support his parents.
