A loan of $700 helped handicrafts (buy raw materials).

José Jeremías's story

José Y. is 21 and married. He is a weaver, and he makes women’s typical skirts. He has a shop with two looms. He lives with his wife. They both do the same work, and they have two employees that help them. They have been making typical skirts in their home for three years. They live in the Pajucbalicaj Caserío, in the Aldea Nimasac, in the Totonicapán department, Guatemala.

Currently, customer demand has grown. However, his economic condition is not sufficient to be able to increase his capital. That is why he has come to the ASDIR Association to ask for a loan. He will use the loan to buy raw material. That way he will be able to increase his sales. He is also hoping to help his family get ahead so that they have better living conditions.
