A loan of $650 helped to purchase a supply of blankets to sell.


Carlos's story

Carlos is 21-years old and is single. He lives independently in a rented room. He has dedicated himself to the sales of small blankets in his small post in the city of Juliaca. He has been in business for the past 4-years, and knows what is needed in cold temperatures as people are demanding these blankets.


Carlos learned to love his job, seeing the satisfaction it offers, but not everything is so rosy as he’s obligated to travel to purchase products from the city of Desaguadero, which is approximately 3.5 hours from his hometown, Juliaca. It is in Juliaca where he sells his blankets. This is his second loan with Microfinanzas Prisma and with these funds he will purchase a larger stock of blankets to sell.
