Eddie José's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy raw material to make shoes, which will allow him to increase production.
Eddie José's story
Eddie is an enterprising small business owner who, at 40 years of age, is married and the owner of a shoe-making workshop. He learned this business thanks to his father, who had a workshop; Eddie's knowledge of this business began there. After working, he started his own business nineteen years ago with his father's help. He currently has three workers to help him who are paid to increase the production. This is the second cycle in which ADIM has provided him with financing that has allowed him to buy wholesale and thus have enough material in times of scarcity. He is asking for the current loan to buy raw material like a gallon of yellow glue, white glue, thread cones, synthetic leather, thin lining, fiber, etc. This will allow him to increase production and thus cover his family's expenses.
