A loan of $1,025 helped buy materials for making jigsaw puzzles.


Hugo Eduardo's story

Hugo is 47 years old and has a daughter who is 16. He is an artisan who makes jigsaw puzzles with themes for very young children. Hugo sells them at wholesale, especially at La Tablada market where he has customers who order weekly. Also, on occasion, he travels to the cities of Oruro and Cochabamba. His trips to the interior do very well. Hugo lives alone, currently with a special rental contract [cash up front, refunded at the end], with his sister and niece.

Hugo will use the loan to buy material for making jigsaw puzzles and, in this manner, optimize his work. Now, Hugo wishes to make a larger quantity of puzzles, to fill his growing orders and, also, because the end of the year is approaching and there will be much demand for his products.

Hugo's major dream is to provide the best for his daughter, since it is for her benefit that he works.
