Luis's story

Luis, 48, is married living with his four daughters two of which are already married and two are still in school. They live in the Maxeño Santo Tomas, La Unión, Suchitepequez.

He’s a hardworking man who strives daily to move his family forward. He comments that he’s a tailor and chose this activity because he likes it because he’s able to manufacture various types of articles of clothing. He’s been in this line of work for 20 years.

He earns acceptable income and profits from what he does and is asking for a 6,000 Quetzal loan to buy an industrial sewing machine to offer better customer service. His dream is to generate higher profits in his business in order to have a locale in which to display the various clothes he makes.
