A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase fabrics, therads, plastics, and glue for upholstering.

Rafael's story

Rafael lives in San Miguel and he has an upholstering and embroidery business. He lives with his 6-year old daughter and his wife, both of whom are financially dependent on him. He starts work very early in the morning and he has two employees. Rafael's business has the advantage that where he has his shop there are no other similar businesses around.

He needs to purchase materials, which is why he requests a loan. He needs fabrics, threads, plastics, glue, and other materials to strengthen his business' inventory and to provide his clients with a better level of service.

He dreams of being the owner of various businesses and to grow as a small business owner.
