A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fabric in bulk.

Francisco's story

Francisco is 53 years old. He is married with two children who are over 18. He sews garments for a living and for years has been making surgical scrubs and doctors coats. His workshop is in his home, which is in the Vino Tinto neighborhood. This loan will be his first cycle with the institution. Francisco will use this loan to buy bulk fabric to make clothing. He is asking for this loan to increase his investment capital as he has contracts with hospitals where he delivers his finished product. He also supplies different fairs where clothing is sold. Francisco faces challenges in his business, such as increasing his profit, and he is going to use his earnings to invest in high quality sewing materials so he will get more orders from his customers. Francisco is a very hardworking person. He is happy with the institution and thankful for the help he has received.
