Miguel Angel
Miguel is 43 years old and married. He lives together with his wife and 3 children who are 17, 19, and 21; two of which already graduated from a profession and the other still continues to study. Today they live in the department of Sololá.
Miguel is a man that looks for a way to move forward with his family. He makes traditional suits for a living as they are used by the community. This trade has generated good income and profits. He also drives a boat for a living because where he lives there is an influx of tourists that enjoy the scenery and the beautiful Lake Atitlán. These two trades have helped him to improve the economy of his family.
Now he has decided to construct a kitchen and for that he is requesting a credit of $400 to purchase construction materials like: blocks, iron and cement. He will pay the loan with the two jobs mentioned.
His dream is to move forward in life with his son in his studies and improve the living conditions of his family.
