A loan of $550 helped to purchase leather.

Wilfredo's story

Mr. Wilfredo Jiménez is 47 years old and is a micro-business owner who began working from a very young age in the family leather goods shop. This helped him because at 19 years of age he decided to open his own shop making belts. He had at his disposal a small sewing machine. Now his business has grown, he has three employees, and all of them work making belts. Wilfredo works selling the belts in the markets of Honduras and he also sells them in El Salvador, where he purchases the leather that he uses. He needs a loan in order to be able to purchase more leather and thus increase his earnings.
