A loan of $450 helped to acquire a location for his shoeshine business.

Segundo Nicolas's story

Segundo is 50 years old and lives in Machachi, which is near Latacunga, with his wife and three children (ages 17, 15, and 12). He is considered to be a person of strong and upright character.

He and his wife shine shoes at the park in Machachi. They have a post from the association where they have worked for two years.

This is the first time Segundo has worked with FODEMI. He is requesting a loan so that he can buy a location from the association so that he and his wife can continue to work. By having this location, they will be able to generate more income for their family and improve their quality of life.

Segundo dreams of attracting more customers so that he can generate more income and finish the construction of his house.
