Segundo Remigio's story

Segundo is 53 years old. He is a hard-working man who is always fighting to make things better for his family. He lives in a suburban area called Perimetral and has worked from a young age learning the trade of his parents. Currently he has a shoe shop in the front part of his home. He works with the help of his wife from Monday to Saturday making footwear and doing repairs. He wants to keep working so he can provide for his wife and their two children, ages 14 and 12, who are in school. In order to make more shoes he is requesting the loan so he can purchase leather and glue. In the future he wants to expand his shop and make improvements to his home.
