A loan of $500 helped buy wholesale raw materials.


Alexander Antonio's story

Alexander Antonio P. lives in Cojutepeque in the Cuscatlán department. Alexander is 32, and he lives with his wife and their four minor children.

Alexander has five years of experience in his business of making shoes. He makes a variety of designs for children and adults.

Alexander’s dream, the reason he is asking for this loan, is to buy wholesale raw materials. That is the only way he can get better earnings. The most important thing is to be competitive in the market. Alexander’s prices are below those of the other shoe makers.
