A loan of $600 helped to buy wooden tubes and a motor for making musical instruments.

Julian's story

Julian is 34 years old, married, and has four children (ages 7, 5, 4, and 2). He and his family live in the city of Otavalo, which is located in the province of Imbabura in northern Ecuador. Julian describes himself as an enterprising person who strives to get better each day so that he and his family can move forward.

Julian works alone in his business of making handcrafted musical instruments. This is the second loan he is requesting from FODEMI and he will invest in the purchase of wooden tubes and a two-horsepower motor. This investment will be of a great help since the motor will allow him to optimize his time. As a result, Julian will be able to achieve good productivity that will lead to excellent results in his sales and his income.

His dream is to travel abroad in order to conduct cultural demonstrations with his musical instruments and to open an international market.
