Justino has had a tailor shop for the past six years. He works alongside his wife. They make jackets, t-shirts and athletic wear. They do well in that they get orders to fill and his wife also distributes product among various market stalls in the city. The loan will be used to buy fabric and thread because he has a pending order for t-shirts for a labor union.
He owns his own house and has three school aged children. This is his first loan with Emprender. He acted as guarantor for a long-standing client and, according to his references, is responsible and very hard working.
He is grateful to Emprender and to Kiva for the trust placed in him upon granting the loan.
