Douglas Antonio
Douglas, 31, is married and has two children, ages 8 and 10. A native of the city of Granada, he is a cobbler. He began this business with his mother-in-law two years ago but became independent from her. For two years he has been running his shoe business by himself.

He sells shoes that he makes himself in the city of Granada and Masaya. With this business he supports his household and pays his children's school expenses.

Douglas enjoys and feels proud of seeing his shoes in high demand, since they are the fruit of his work and made with his own hands.

He needs the loan to buy materials such as leather, beads, shanks, soles, and nails, which are part of the materials he uses to make his leather shoes.

With the investment he will be able to buy the materials he needs more easily at a good price. According to what he tells us, his plans are to expand into other departments in the country like Matagalpa and Chinadega, get a small store where he can give jobs, and have economic stability to give his children a better future.
