Luis Fernando's story

Luis Fernando is a hardworking and dedicated man. He is married and has 3 children. He has been a cobbler for the last 25 years and now, in his 56th year, he lives alone with his wife. However, he has not abandoned his small business as, according to him, he is happy pleasing his customers with the perfect shoes for every one of them.

His dream is to be able to work and be useful until his final days. That is why he is currently asking for a loan to purchase consumables to bring out a line of shoes and buy some sandal designs for the season bonuses and in this way manage to improve his income and proportionately improve his and his wife's quality of life.
