A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase fabric to make garments.

Juan's story

Juan's main activity is sewing garments for gentlemen and ladies in his tailor's shop, which is located in one of the busiest areas of the town of El Alto. He's married, and he and his wife have three children. His wife raises cattle. At the moment of the visit, he was sewing clothing, which is their main source of income. On this occasion, he requests the loan in order to purchase fabric for making garments, since he has a lot of orders. Juan is a very hardworking person with the drive to overcome. In time, he wishes to own a larger shop and hire employees. He feels very thankful to the institution for the support he's been given.
