A loan of $1,025 helped purchase merchandise, shoes and sneakers.


Humberto Elias's story

Humberto has a store in his neighborhood where he sells all types of shoes. He started this business because since he was very young he worked with his friend at a store at the bay. In time he saved money until he had enough capital to open his own shoe store. He currently does not have any help, he himself sells and takes care of the customers. The prices vary depending on the type and quality of shoe and whether they are for boys or girls. He is very happy with all that he has achieved in the short time that he has been in business. Recently he has made improvements to the store increasing shelf space. He needs the loan to purchase merchandise to be able to increase his sales. In the future he would like to be able buy a municipal business and open another store in the market.
