Ubaldo Miguel's story

Mr. Ubaldo A. is 25 years old and lives in the town of Caserío Chotacaj, Aldea Vásquez in the Totonicapán Region of Guatemala. He works in the handicraft production of typical native dress of various designs. He is married with two kids. Due to the demand of native weaves, he needs to increase his capital and the loom workshop. He approached ASDIR to apply for a loan of 3,504 quetzales to buy raw materials and increase production. As a child his parents were unable to give him the opportunity to study so his dream today is to improve the quality of life for his family and send his two children to school. He is recognized figure in his community and has a good record.
