Oscar Rafael's story

Sr. Oscar S. is 27 years old and married. He is a weaver by profession and makes “traditional women’s skirts”. Together with his wife, they operate a 2 loom workshop and have one employee. For six years they have been making skirts out of their home in the Tzansiguan neighborhood in the village of Vásquez, Totonicapán district, Guatemala. Now that customer demand has increased, they do not have sufficient finances to grow their business. For this reason, Sr. Oscar has requested a loan from Asociación ASDIR to buy raw materials needed to increase his sales.
