A loan of $1,200 helped to buy shoes for men, women and children.


Jose Gilberto's story

José decided to get a new loan because the approaching season is good for sales. Because of this, he wants to buy shoes for men, women and children in different styles. His business has improved because he now has more merchandise to offer his customers.
His condition has improved because he now has experience both in business and in the management of loans.
