Francisco has a small casual clothing workshop in his home where he makes T-shirts, camisoles, blouses, sweaters, and other garments and then delivers the goods to wholesalers located in two of the district in Sololá. He learned this trade from his father when he was nine years old. Much later he saw that he could have a good productive business. By offering affordable prices, he is able to generate good earnings to support his wife and children.
The year-end season is approaching and the demand for the products he sells increases during this time. He needs to invest more capital, so Francisco is requesting a loan of 9,000 GTQ so that he can buy rolls of fabric for making T-shirts and fulfilling all of the orders he has received. With the earnings he generates from his business, Francisco wants to open a shoe store in the future and improve his income so that he and his family can prosper.
