Alexander Antonio
Alexander Antonio, 34, lives in his own house with his wife, Sandra, 28, and their four children, three of whom are in school, in a very simple part of the country.

Alexander is a very creative man. He does not let an opportunity to make new and attractive things pass him by. He manufactures and is a street vendor of all sorts of footwear for all ages, tastes and preferences. Thanks to his charisma he’s managed to establish a regular customer base because he’s a kind man and also because if it’s something to do with shoes, he always has what customers need. Besides, he offers quality and affordable prices in his shoe shop. Thanks to this business he’s been able to support his family and his dream is to continue enjoying the fruits of his labor which have been profitable to date.

All this has led him to call upon INTEGRAL to request a new loan to buy raw materials like: leather, glue, needles, nylon, etc. to continue making a variety of shoes that will attract more customers.

Alexander has very good references as a client of this institution. He hopes this way to continue to provide his family with their daily bread and give his daughters schooling so that someday they can become great professionals.
