A loan of $1,100 helped to buy used shoes to resell.

Juan Bautista's story

Juan is married to Ms. Nidia. They have two older, married children who are independent. They have a business together where they repair shoes and sell used shoes.

They started the business with money that Juan received as compensation from an earlier job. He explains that the only way for him to grow is through loans, as it is very difficult to accumulate enough operating capital. This is why he opted to make this request. Juan is a very responsible person with a desire to improve his lot. He has a jovial spirit and is an entrepreneur who does not doubt that he is going to achieve all of the goals he has set for himself.

Juan is requesting this loan to buy used shoes that he will later resell. He is grateful to the foundation for this opportunity.
