A loan of $400 helped to buy leather, thread, glue, fabric, etc.


Manuel De Jesus's story

Manuel is 50 years old and runs a shoe workshop where he makes and repairs shoes. He runs his workshop from home and has many clients due to the quality of his products. With his sales he has been able to cover the household costs that come up. He lives in his own home with his wife.

Manuel is applying for a loan to buy leather, thread, glue, fabric, etc. to continue making shoes since that is his only source of income. This loan will provide him and his family with a better quality of life.
