Hector Daniel's story

At 53 years of age, Sr. Héctor Daniel has been working as a shoemaker for 40 years. His father was in the same line of work and taught him everything he needed to know so that he could open his own workshop. Héctor Daniel works Monday through Saturday from 8am to 6pm. His wife and his young daughter assist him.

In order to improve his sales and his quality of life, Sr. Héctor Daniel needs to buy supplies such as adhesives, soles, fabrics, and leather so that he can make new styles of shoes that he can offer to his customers. His dream is to convert his workshop into a large shoe distribution warehouse.
