El Fraile De Sabana Grande Group's story

Pantaleón is 58 years old, has a charming family of 3 children, and they live in the rural sector. At the age of 25, as a result of the war that was in his country, he lost one of his legs. At age 28, he adapted to his tragedy and overcame it, and decided to study sewing and tailoring with the desire to generate income and support his family. He earns a living repairing and tailoring outfits for every occasion. He has been in this business for 30 years and likes what he does a lot. He lives in a zone where there is no competition, since he is the only tailor in the district.

His dream is to build an establishment just for his shop and to purchase an electric sewing machine to make his work easier. He has great hopes for the Christmas and school season to be productive and it is for this that he sees the need to ask for a loan from FUNDENUSE with Kiva funds to invest in the purchase of raw materials for his shop.

He belongs to the solidarity group El Fraile de Sabana Grande with Mauricio, who works selling basic grains, Erlinda, who sells fried and other food, and Dora, who sells second-hand clothing.
