A loan helped to buy thread, fabric, and other implements.

Roberto Olmedo's story

Roberto Olmedo and his family live in the city of Puerto López, a place of gorgeous beaches and tourist attractions which have not yet recovered from the crisis caused by COVID-19.

He is a hardworking man who seeks to get ahead, and despite the difficulties, he fights to earn a living. He started a sewing workshop and also works selling Yanbal products (perfume, creams, costume jewelry, cosmetics). At the start of the quarantine, he did not have clothing items to make and only worked selling the products from his house and via social media. But these sales are only enough to cover the household expenses, not to repay his debt. Now he is sewing and selling more, and so he hopes that everything will continue to return to his life before.

This loan is to buy thread, fabric, and other implements. He hopes to continue with the help of the loans.
