A loan of $1,500 helped buy leather, glue, thread, and other materials.


Franklin Javier's story

Franklin is 22 years old and makes footwear.

His father spent all his life making shoes for men and Franklin learned this trade from him. He and his brothers worked for other people, but Franklin wanted to have his own shoe shop.

Today, he has been the owner of his own business for two years and his parents and brothers work there. Franklin asks for a loan to buy leather, glue, thread, and other materials he needs.

In the future, this young man wants to export his products to the whole country.
