Santos Leonidas's story

Santos is married and lives with his wife and their two dependent children. He does not have family members living abroad. Santos owns a business selling shoes, which he opened in 2019. He works with his wife from Monday to Saturday from 6:30 a.m. until noon. Because of restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, he had to shut down his business.

He wants to shore up his business and needs working capital for this, sho he has decided to solicit a loan. He will buy shoes for women and children, and also invest in children's clothing. Then he will have a wider variety of new merchandise to meet customer demand. He hopes the financial support will help him to gradually recover from the loss resulting from having to shut down, since he had to sell almost all of his merchandise at deep discounts to be able to cover his bills. His goals are to increase sales and in the future open a bazaar in town to expand his business.
