A loan of $1,475 helped to buy a sewing machine.


Aldo's story

Aldo, 33, lives in his mother-in-law’s house in a settlement in the city of Paraguarí. His spouse is Mirian and they have a two-year-old son who motivates the couple to strive.

Aldo learned clothes making at the age of 13 from his father and started to work independently two years ago after working with his father for 8 years. By means of much effort and sacrifice he was able to acquire his first sewing machine to be able to establish his own clientele. Aldo is a very self-sacrificing man who strives daily to provide the best for his family. He needs the loan to buy another sewing machine because his clothes are in high demand.
