Wilson Dario's story

Wilson is a single father, head of household; he has a nine-year-old daughter whose mother abandoned them some time ago without making any economic contribution toward her support which left Wilson with the responsibility of covering all expenses generated there.

Thanks to a sister of his who had a sewing workshop back then, he was able to get a well-paying job and learned clothes making. Later on his sister was forced to close her sewing workshop and this is how Wilson started his own sewing shop where he provides sewing services to third parties and during low production periods manufactures his own line of bedspreads and quilts, among others.

He’s been in this activity for about 6 years now and with his own business a much shorter time but thanks to the good quality of his products he’s managed to get very good orders both in sewing for third parties as well as for his own line. Because of this he has large orders at present for his bedspreads and quilts and is looking for a loan to buy supplies and raw materials like fabric and thread, among others to manufacture his bedspreads and quilts and respond to the large orders his customers have placed.

In this way his business will continue to grow and he will be able to continue generating income to offer his daughter a better quality of life and access to a better quality education.
