A loan of $750 helped buy tools for making shoes.


Angelica Isabel's story

Angelica is 20 years old and single. She went to school until the fifth grade. She has been making footwear with her mother and her siblings for five years.

She has now come to ASDIR to request a loan to be able to buy two tools for making shoes. She and her family have been able to stabilize themselves economically through this activity.
