Pablo's story

Pablo is a 51-year-old artisan. He lives with his wife and six children who are 25, 22, 20 and 18 years old plus two little ones. His main source of income is the manufacture and sale of clayware. It is a family business. They’ve been doing it for many years. His children work with him, come of them forming and other firing what’s made. Then, they take them to be sold. His difficulty is that he lacks enough capital to buy raw materials. Currently, he’s asking for a loan to buy clay, nacazcol (a black dye) and firewood. By having these materials on hand he can increase production and have more opportunities to sell. He has always supported his children and his dream is to leave them well prepared to be able to have their own homes in stable conditions and that they will be able to grow with the business.
