A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase raw materials for making mattresses.


Rimer's story

Señor Rimes is 26-years old. At his young age, he has already built his own home on some land that he was given by his parents. When he was very young, Rimer went to Brazil to work for a sewing company, where he learned how to make mattresses. And that is how he came to have a small mattress-making factory. He sells the mattresses in Cochabamba's domestic market. With his savings from his work in Brazil, Rimer was able to buy the sewing machines. He lives in the Tamborada community, near his mother's house. The loan Rimer is requesting is for the purchase of raw materials for making mattresses. He will then be able to increase his sales and improve his standard of living.
