Juan Alfredo's story

Juan Alfredo is 37 years old and married. He completed 6 years of primary education and has 3 children, 2 of whom are in school now. He works in the business of weaving cortes [traditional skirts] and other fabrics. He started this job as a labourer and now has 4 years of experience. He has the support of wife, who works in the same trade.

He is asking for a loan to buy thread and patterns with different designs, to make different cortes in a variety of colours and designs.

In the future he hopes to have a large and well-known business, and he wants to improve his family's quality of life.
