A loan of $875 helped to purchase leather for shoemaking.

José Omar's story

José Omar is a cobbler by trade. He is married. He started out as an employee at a shoemaking shop nine years ago, but in time he decided to start his own business. He began purchasing his own work tools, and he currently employs twelve workers. His points of sale are Managua, Matagalpa, and two of his buyers travel to Honduras.

He has returned to our offices to request financing in order to purchase leather for shoemaking (raw material), because there is a strong demand. He believes this loan will help him increase his income and make his family more comfortable. He appreciates your support, because it has been of great help.
