A loan of $1,850 helps to buy sponge for use in the making of shoes to keep his business running non stop.


Anwar's story

Anwar is a cobbler and he makes shoes for a reasonable price. He likes his job and has been able to succeed in it. Many shoe stores take his work and are happy with him. His skill gets better every day and what used to take him a whole day takes him a couple of hours now. This improved skill makes his efforts worthwhile because he can sell a good number of shoes every month.

Anwar takes care of a lot of people and he needs the money. A loan will help him buy sponge, a material he uses a lot in the making of shoes. His dream is to have a brand name and a shop that sells his work.


This loan is special because:

It increases access to finances to the highest poverty communities in Jordan.
