A loan of $500 helped working capital (raw material purchase).


Maria Rosario's story

Ms. María Lacán is 47, married, and a seamstress of sweat suits. She has a workshop with three machines. She lives with her two children; they all work in the same activity and have two more employees.



She has been making sweat suits for 18 years in Paraje Xepatriz, district of Nimapa, department of Totonicapan, Guatemala..



Her customers’ current demand has increased but her economic conditions are not solid enough to increase the working capital. This is the reason why she came to ASDIR association, to ask for a loan to buy raw materials and, as a consequence, increase her sales to support her children and offer them better living conditions..
