A loan of $1,025 helped to buy a machine for sewing shoes.


Concepcion Catalina's story

Señora Concepción sells women's shoes in one of the busiest markets in the city of Alto. Demand for women's shoes is higher than demand for men's shoes in Alto. Concepción sells every day and her sales are good. Her husband helps her; he makes all sorts of shoes in their home. Concepción's greatest dream is for her children to go to university one day and have professions, so that they can have a better future. With this loan, she will buy a sewing machine for making shoes. Concepción is an enterprising and hard-working woman. She is grateful for this opportunity.
