A loan of $1,125 helped to buy thread and fabric.

Miguel Angel's story

Miguel lives in Duran. He started with his business in order to give his family a better income opportunity. He makes handicrafts, and he sells them to students at elementary schools and high schools. He also sometimes goes to the beaches in Esmeraldas to sell in order to have more income.

He does not have any difficulties now. The only difficulty is in his house, which is made of wood and reeds. He needs to change the floor of his house because it is damaged due to the fact that it is made of wood.

He has a lot of aspirations in his business. Therefore, he wants to use the loan to buy thread and fabric to make his handicrafts. This way he will have income to fix the floor of his house.
