A loan of $450 helped to buy fabric.


Mateo Francisco's story

Mateo, 32, works embroidering clothing like dance costumes for various cultural festivals. He does the work in an artisanal way and has been doing this work for two years. His workshop is located in the Mario Mercado zone and this loan is his first sequence in the institution. Mateo will use this loan to buy fabric to embroider and make clothing. His reason for requesting the loan is the lack of working capital.

The business challenge Mateo faces is to continue improving the clothing embroidery and he will use profits to continue increasing working capital. His wish for his business is that it grows and to not only embroider but also to manufacture various articles of clothing. Mateo feels happy and grateful to the institution for the support provided.
