Lazaro Gabriel's story

Lázaro Gabriel is single, 22 years old, and a native of one of the municipalities of Chinandega, located in the west of the country in a predominantly commercial sector and where there is one of the nation's largest refineries.

He is characterized as a young worker, responsible, eager to improve himself. He is a micro-entrepreneur who owns and operates a carpentry workshop where he works with several assistants who are paid biweekly. He offers all kinds of furniture such as armoirs, doors, windows, beds, cribs, dressers, pantries, sets of rocking chairs, dining sets and all types of commercial furniture as well as catalogs for special orders. All his work is of high quality.

His sales are made to merchants and dealers in the surrounding area. He started his business with the help of his father who encouraged him in this business and later he became well-known for his work.

One of his dreams is to build his own home with better conditions, and to grow his business. The purpose of this loan is to invest in capital and the work by purchasing wood, nails, screws, veneers, lacquers, glue, steel wool, hinges, locks, etc. in order to meet the demands of customers ordering furniture.
