A loan of $1,000 helped to buy wool to knit sweaters.

Isaac's story

Señor Isaac lives in the Villa Primavera area of the city of Alto. He is married to Señora Nelly and has three school-age children. He knits and sells woolen sweaters for a living. He has a stall at the Desaguadero market which is on the border of Bolivia and Perú and he travels there every Friday with his wife to sell the sweaters.

One of his greatest wishes to be able to expand his business in order to have a better income and to carry out an extension of his house. They also hope to support their children so that they will grow up to become professionals. At this time Don Isaac is requesting a loan to buy bags of wool to increase the capital of his business.
