A loan of $1,000 helped to buy materials to make furniture and wooden brushes.

Santos Miguel's story

Santos Miguel makes wooden beds (frames and bases), chopping boards for the kitchen, laundry brushes and other items. He has a 26% profit margin which he uses to take care of his wife and son.

In the picture you can see leftover corncobs on the floor which he uses in the oven as part of the process (this prevents excessive firewood consumption, helping the environment as it prevents pollution and forest degradation). You can also see the handles of the wooden laundry brushes (which can be used to clean dirt from work pants, avoiding high consumption of detergents and therefore making washing clothes more efficient).

He is asking for a loan to help him to purchase these materials to support his business.
