A loan of $1,500 helped to buy raw material (wood).


Israel Alberto's story

Twenty-five-year-old Isreal is single, lives with Melvi and has two children who depend on his income.

He has been making a living by offering carpentry services (making tables and chairs) since he was very young and has worked independently for about four years. For the assembly and sanding of the tables and chairs, he has the help of his partner. All the output of tables and chairs is delivered to the market to different vendors, who are tasked with selling them. In this way, he generates the income necessary to be able to support his family.

The current request for a loan is to buy raw material (wood) to make tables and chairs so that in this way he can generate more income in order to satisfy his economic needs. Isreal is a responsible person and has a lot of desire to succeed, while always watching out for the well-being of his family.
