Gregorio Geronimo's story

Gregorio, 45, is married and the father of three children. He is dark skinned, has short hair, and is of average height. He's dedicated to his work and is a person of modest character.

Gregorio earns a living making and selling seasonal socks. He learned to make socks in a textile training class for a group of entrepreneurs, with the idea of creating a micro-business. He works in the city of El Alto, where the low temperatures make his undertaking a profitable business.

His family is present throughout the entire production process, such as fabric purchasing, manufacturing, and sales. His business is located in the very commercial 16 de Junio area, and he works from Monday through Sunday. His dreams revolve around his work: selling wholesale and distributing his merchandise nationwide.

His children work in the same business. The eldest finished secondary school and is studying tailoring and fashion design, following in his father's footsteps. The younger children are still in school but already have sewing experience.

For these reasons Gregorio is requesting a loan to buy thread and fabric to improve the family business.
