Esteban's story

Esteban R. is 48 years old. He is married and has one daughter. He has been living in Buena Vista neighborhood for four years. He travels to the 'Mercado Viejo' (Old Market) in San Lorenzo, from Monday to Saturday, to make his sales. When sales are bad, Esteban sews used shoes.

Esteban is a very hard-working and responsible person. His wife helps him to sell clothes when he goes off to do his shoe repair work in other places.

Esteban will use this loan to buy clothes to sell during the Christmas season. He needs the profits from his business to cover his household expenses.
