Jorge Wilfrido's story

Jorge is 39 years old and considers himself to be a happy and sociable person, and above all, responsible toward his family. Jorge lives with his wife and their son in the city of Cotocachi that is 25 minutes from Otavalo in the province of Otavalo.

Jorge works alone making t-shirts and blouses. Jorge began his business 2 years ago, and it is his only source of income and he needs it to provide for his needs. For this reason he is asking for a loan from Fodemi to buy supplies like rolls of fabric, boxes of thread, stamps, and elastic to fill an order. This will allow him to obtain more earnings and improve his family's quality of life.

Jorge dreams of having a big workshop where he can hire employees.
