A loan of $400 helped to buy vegetables and woven fabric.


Camilo's story

Camilo is a single, 53 year-old man who lives with his life partner and has seven children. Three of them live with him and the others have formed their own families.They live in the department of Solola.

He states that he works at two activities: one is the creation and sale of hand-woven fabrics which he does from his house; the other is the purchase and sale of vegetables which he sells in the city. Both activities have provided income and earnings that have contributed to his family's finances, so now he has decided to request a loan of Q 3,000 ($400) to buy vegetables and woven fabrics. In this way he will be able to improve service to his customers and also increase his earnings.

Camilo dreams of improving his family's living conditions so that they might have better opportunities in the future.
