Rafael's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped Buy and Overlock sewing machine.
Rafael is a new client. He was recommended by another client who is in his first loan cycle. Up until now he has never been late, not even one day. Rafael makes clothing. He does this in a small shop in the heavily populated Rodriguez market. He lives with his mother and his siblings. On the week ends he goes to take care of his grandfather. In addition to sewing, Rafael goes to school in the evenings. He will use the money from the loan to buy an Overlock sewing machine to be able to make thicker clothes.
