Jose Francisco
José, 40, is a modest cobbler from the city of Granada. He's the father of three children, one of whom is disabled and doesn't attend school.

He acquired his experience in footwear at a young age when he worked as an assistant in a cobbler shop after he traveled to Costa Rica, where he also worked making leather shoes. He saved money and when he returned to Nicaragua managed to buy his first machines to start making shoes.

Currently he has six years of experience in his shop, where he produces shoes from Nicaraguan leather. His specialty is men's shoes, which are in high demand because of the quality of the product. He sells in the cities of Chinandega, León, and Granada.

He needs a loan to buy leather, soles, glue, and nails so he can more easily buy the raw materials he needs to work.

His desire is to have a bigger workshop with more assistants and specialize in exporting Nicaraguan shoes.
