Basilio Jacinto's story

Sr. Basilio Jacinto is married and 43 years old. He never had the opportunity to go to school. He has eight children and earns his living doing crafts, especially weaving material for traditional clothing. He started out helping in the family business and now has 31 years of experience doing this kind of work.

He is seeking a loan to buy different types and colours of yarn to improve his business. In the future Basilio hopes to have a factory and employ people to work there.
