A loan of $400 helped to purchase weaving materials.

Santos Faustino's story

Santos Faustino is married. He is 24 years old and didn't have a chance to go to school. He works in weaving and started this business with his parents when he was younger. He has five years of experience so far and his wife, who works the same trade, helps him.

He is requesting a loan, which he will use to purchase different types of threads in different colors and also to buy "silk diamonds" which he uses to embellish the fabrics he weaves. He hopes to have several employees and a profitable business in the future.
