A loan of $1,025 helped to buy shoes to sell.


Jose Gilberto's story

Jose resides in Jiquilisco, Usulutan department and he sells shoes. He lives with his family and his 3 children, aged 21, 18, and 14 respectively. Jose began selling shoes in the streets some 15 years ago, and he travels to the capital to buy his merchandise.

Jose needs a loan to buy shoes at Adoc and Almacenes El Chino. This new merchandise will enable him to offer his customers an ample number of new styles and to improve his sales. Jose's goal is to have his own stall where he can offer merchandise and earn greater profits.
