A loan of $600 helped to buy material in bulk for embroidery.

Baddy's story

Twenty-seven year old Baddy is a responsible young man and has lived in the same family-owned house all his life, along with his parents and two sisters. Baddy's main income comes from sewing vests for "Huayla", a typical dance in the region. Thanks to his talents in embroidery, he receives many orders every week and he now has three years experience in this business. However, he learned this skill as a child, when his parents taught him this family trade. He currently has many orders and is having to work twice as much: "I have to take full advantage as I am earning good money", he says. In addition to this work, Baddy also works as a builder and he is currently replacing the roof of and renovating one of the city's schools. Baddy plans are to improve his income to help his sisters - he wants to pay for their university studies. Baddy belongs to the "Mollecito" solidarity group and this is his second loan with MFP. He is very happy to know that he will have financial support as that way he will feel secure as he progresses with his business. He also promises to make his repayments on time.

Baddy will invest the money in buying material in bulk for embroidery.
