A loan helped to purchase fabric by the bolt to sew and sell clothing in bulk in another city.


Mario Esteban's story

Mario continues working sewing children's athletic clothing. The previous loan was used to purchase fabric by the bolt and he was able to rent a sales space, his payments were in advance because he planned and achieved his goal of production and sales. Currently, his business has grown, he sells clothing in bulk in other cities and rents a sales stand in the market. "I want to continue growing because in these recent times I have grown better than before..." he says. His business is successful because it is of good quality. The advantage of his business is that it attracts customers for its unique and simple designs, the disadvantage is the lack of fabric with which to work. His dream is to purchase a retail space in the city where he sells in bulk. He wants to purchase fabric by the bolt to continue growing in his business. This is his fourth loan cycle with the institution in the 8 years he has been doing this work.

For these reasons, Mario asks for a loan to purchase fabric by the bolt to sell clothing in bulk in another city.
