Gustavo Adolfo's story

Gustavo is a 49-year-old single father of three children. He wants them to get ahead, so he works hard so that he can generate income to provide for their education, food, and well-being.

For the past 25 years, Gustavo has worked at his own business. He has a carpentry shop located in a popular neighborhood in the town where he resides. Gustavo works at his shop beginning in the early morning hours so that he can generate the income he needs to take care of his family’s expenses.

The loan he is requesting will be invested in the purchase of supplies such as wood, tacks, industrial adhesives, and paint. This will allow him to complete his outstanding orders and deliver his products in a timely manner. These results will be reflected with an increase in sales and revenue.

Gustavo says that his greatest wish is to open a location where he can set up his own gallery for displaying all the furniture he produces. This would increase his clientele and his sales, which would improve the profitability of his business and provide him with greater financial stability. As a result, he and his children could enjoy a better quality of life.
