Nancy Dominga's story

Nancy has a shoe repair business in Fontín, where she provides shoe repair and shoemaking services. She started her business thanks to a loan that she used to purchase equipment and raw materials. This was 8 years ago, and over time she has realized that it was an excellent investment, as her business is profitable. Her children help her, and the business is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm. Nancy is 40 years old and single. She lives with her 3 children who attend school. With this loan she will buy soles, buckles, and nails which she hopes will increase her sales so she can finish building her home.
