Oscar's story

Oscar is 26 years old and has been married to his wife Jessica for two years. They have started their own family and are very happy about the birth of their first daughter who is due in about five months.

He works making woolen vests that are worn when playing sports. He is asking for a loan at this time to buy raw materials like fabric, 12 or 13 different colors of dye, thread, measuring tools, mallets, and needles. Finding the fabric and dye is a little complicated, but nothing he can't solve. His successes are when he sells more. This is generally in the autumn- winter season when the weather is cold. He goes out to sell the woolen vests in various places and he says it goes very well.

The only goal that Oscar has is to secure more income in order to give his family a financial standing, perhaps a well-established house. "I am very thankful because with your help I can continue working and earning a better income."
