A loan of $425 helped to buy fabrics and accessories.


Armando José's story

Don Armando is married and the father of three children who study and help him with his tailing shop. His wife helps out as well. With this business, they are able to cover the main household expenses such as food, school costs, and other items.

Don Armando occasionally has difficulties with his sewing machines, so sometimes he is not able to proceed with the completion of his orders. Replacing his equipment will be expensive. With the fifth loan he is requesting, Armando will buy fabrics and accessories so that he can continue sewing and selling his products.
