Adrian Antonio
43-year-old Adrian comes from Granada. He's in a common law marriage and has four children aged 3, 14, 18 and 20 years. Only one of them is currently in school; the other three are in the workforce. He's a seller by trade. He has been making and selling shoes ever since he was very young. He completed his education up to the second year of secondary school (equivalent to middle or junior high school). He got his start in this line of work as an assistant to his boss, who ran the same type of business. That was how he acquired experience and completely mastered the trade. By using his savings he decided to establish a business of his own, a shoemaking shop. That's how he has been able to get ahead, with support from other institutions but mostly through his own efforts and daily, hard work. He gets help from his life partner and his daughter in this business. He sells his products in Estelí and Chinandega, where he has regular customers.
He requests the loan in order to purchase raw materials such as leather, adhesive, thread, equipment, etc. - all of the supplies he needs to make his shoes. He reckons that the loan will be of great help, because he will be able to deliver his orders in a timely and adequate fashion. That way he'll be able to offer a very high quality product and keep his customers most satisfied. One of his goals for the future is to expand his business venue so that he can increase his sales and therefore improve his profits. His next goal is to buy wholesale supplies, all the ones he needs in order to make his shoes.
