A loan of $550 helped to buy raw materials.


Carlos Luis's story

Señor Carlos C. is 56 years of age, married and lives with his wife in their home in Paraje Xeatzam in the Cantón of Nimapá, Department of Totonicapán, Guatemala. He and his wife work at making Cortes Típicos, traditional Guatemalan clothing, and they also have two employees for the same. They have been doing this for 18 years. At present, their customers' demand is growing but current economic conditions have not allowed them to build up any capital. That's why they have approached Asociación ASDIR to request a loan for the purpose of buying raw materials so that they will be able to increase their sales. They are also hoping they and their family will be able to get ahead and improve their living conditions.
