A loan of $525 helped to buy fabric and work material.


Mario's story

Mario makes a living embroidering garments such as folkloric costumes from distinct regions. He has had this job for several years. The work he carries out is manual and requires a lot of work. His workshop is located in the Alto Lima zone.

This loan is his first one with the institution, and Mario will use it to buy fabric and materials to embroider his garments. He is requesting the loan because he lacks working capital. Mario faces challenges in his business including the need to continue improving the quality of embroidery on his costumes, and he will use his profits to continue increasing his working capital.

His dream is for his business to grow and not only to embroider but also to manufacture a variety of garments. Mario is happy and thankful to the institution for the its support.
