A loan of $600 helped purchase materials for making shoes.


Francisco's story

Francisco E. lives in San Juan Opico, which is located in the district of La Libertad. He is 46 years old and married to Doña Lilian de E., who takes care of their sons Juan (age 14) and Jorge (age 11). Both children are enrolled in school.


Francisco supports his family financially by manufacturing all types of footwear out of his workshop. His current inventory is valued at $325 USD. He hopes to increase his inventory with this loan by purchasing more leather, shoetrees, and adhesives. These materials will help increase his production and result in larger sales.
