A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fabric to manufacture Carnival costumes.

Rogelio's story

Rogelio, 45, is single and has three children. He works sewing a variety of costumes according to the season and his customers’ needs. His workshop is his and is located at home in the Tembladerani zone. This loan is his 4th cycle in the institution and Rogelio will use it to buy fabric to make Carnival costumes.

Rogelio’s business challenge is the lack of sewing machines and sometimes supplies depending on the work he has to do when he gets wholesale orders. He will use profits to buy the various sewing machines he needs. Rogelio is a hardworking person who wants to have a larger workshop and to hire staff to teach youngsters the sewing occupation.
