Primitivo's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase additional inventory supplies and a shoe stretcher, and upgrade existing equipment.
Primitivo has owned his shoe repair and retail store in Corpus Christi, Texas, for more than two years. At his store, you can receive shoe and boot repairs, leather repairs, and purchase polish and other shoe-care products. Originally from Jalisco, Mexico, Primitivo enjoys Corpus and life here in the United States. Primitivo learned about Accion Texas Inc. from an Accion employee. The Accion representative explained the many loan programs offered by the nonprofit organization. Once he applied and received his $4,375 Accion loan, Primitivo began using the loan to purchase additional inventory supplies and a shoe stretcher, and upgrade existing equipment. Without the loan, Primitivo would not have been able to accept more customers and give them a quick turnaround on their repairs. The loan helped him do this and increase his revenue. He currently does not employ anyone, but looks forward to hiring an employee in the near future.
