Pascual's story

Pascual is 51 years old, he is married with Esther and they have 2 children who do not live with them. Pascual and his wife live in their own house, and it took them many years to build it. Pascual is a simple and charismatic man who engages in repairing and making clothes.
He has been engaging in this activity for 10 years. He has started by renting out a small locale and with a sewing machine. He currently has 3 machines and works together with his wife and his daughter-in-law. He says: “As we are celebrating the anniversary of the province, we are working a lot these days, as we are asked to make costumes, flags and other items”.
He also says that January, February and March are the months in which his activity does not give good results, but the other mother are better.
What he needs the most for his job are mending materials such as threads and needles, as well as different types of fabric. For this reason he needs your help this time in order to buy what he lacks. This is his 2nd loan with MFP, and he says he is happy about his Communal Bank, “Los Pioneros de Capelo” (Capelo’s Pioneers) as its members are close-knit.
The loan he is requesting will be used to buy cones of threads in different colors to do his repairs and make his creations.
