Dimas's story

Dimas, 67, is a tailor. He lives with his wife and a two year old daughter. He learned the business 30 years ago on his own initiative. He traveled to the United States where he perfected his skills and he currently works in schools manufacturing uniforms. In addition, he sews for individuals, friends and neighbors.

He’s asking for a loan to buy fabric, buttons, zippers and thread. These supplies will help him have what he needs to make clothing on hand thereby filling his pending orders.

His goal is to build his house since he has a piece of land in his name. He hopes the business will prosper so that he will be able to reach his goal.
