A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase two sewing machines.

Guillermo's story

Guillermo makes a living with his tailoring workshop, sewing formal attire for men and women. His workshop is located in the Juana Azurduy zone in the city of El Alto, and he lives with his wife, who is a teacher. At the time of the picture Guillermo was working in his workshop, which is the main source of income for his family. He is requesting the loan to purchase two sewing machines to increase his output because due to his demand he wants to hire workers and he lacks machinery. He feels thankful and happy for their support.
