Rolando Bladimir's story

Rolando is twenty-four years old and lives in the municipality of Osicala, in the department of Morazan. He is single, lives with his two brothers, and makes hammocks for a living. He learned this trade from his mom when when he was thirteen and has been running this business, making hammocks with his brothers, for three years. They begin weaving early in the morning each day because their income depends on what they produce.

Rolando needs a loan to buy different colors of silk threads, sleeves, and tubes -- all materials for making hammocks. This will help him get the materials and be able to continue earning an income and taking care of his family's needs. His goal is to make a good investment and he dreams of growing his business, sales, and of improving his earnings to guarantee his family's security.
