A loan of $800 helped to buy material to make bowler hats.


Daniel Natalio's story

Daniel lives in the Villa Tunari area of El Alto. He makes ladies' and men's bowler hats for a living. He lives in a rental unit where he has a workshop to make his ladies' and men's bowler hats. That is why he asking for this loan, as he needs to buy material to make the hats and he needs capital to make nicer hats. He turns his merchandise over by the dozen to hat shops in the city of La Paz. A while ago he bought some land in the San Roque area. He is building a wall around it himself and he hopes to build some small rooms so he can go live in his own home and no longer have to pay rent. He also wants to give his family more comfort, which is why he works hard and applies himself.
