A loan of $1,050 helped to buy fabric and thread.


Nestor Oswaldo's story

Néstor is 47 years old and started working as a tailor as a young child and since then has always enjoyed sewing. He has worked in rented premises for the last 9 years.

He works alone every day from 8 in the morning until 4 in the afternoon. "Gracias a Dios" (thanks to God) he has not had any difficulties with his business.

He is separated from his wife but has 3 children, 15, 8 and 6 years of age who study in state schools. With the loan he wants to buy fabric and thread to improve his income. His goal is to establish a working area in his own house in order to work comfortably.
