Pablo's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to build a sewing workshop in the house where he lives.

Pablo's story

Pablo is 39 years old. He is single and has no children. Pablo lives with his brother and his sister-in-law. Pablo works as a tailor and has his workshop installed in the home where he lives. Practically, his room is his workshop. He has worked for a few years in the sewing business. Pablo's brother and sister-in-law also earn a living in this business but, at the moment, there is not an alliance between Pablo and his brother, due to Pablo wanting to be more comfortable.

Pablo is requesting a loan to construct a workshop for sewing in the house where he lives. In this way, he will be able to store his materials and work with more comfort. Pablo hopes to contract helpers in the not-so-distant future if things improve.
