A loan of $1,400 helped to buy an industrial sewing machine and shoe repair supplies.


Anyela Andrea's story

Anyela learned how to manufacture shoes when still very young and thanks to this managed to get a good job in a firm where she worked for nine years. When she got married and had her son who is now 13-years-old she decided to leave her job and start a shoe-making workshop at home so that she could care for her son and improve the quality of life they had at home. Despite not having much capital, her efforts made it possible for the business to move forward but because of her lack of capital and the great amount of competition in this sector she went bankrupt six years ago and has to look for other alternatives to get ahead. With enormous effort she’s managed to recuperate the business and continue working to generate household income and seeking now to find a way to continue making progress is looking for financing to buy an industrial sewing machine and raw materials needed for shoe repair. In this way she will overcome this problem of capital that has prevented her from responding to large customer orders and she will be able to continue making progress with her family and improving the quality of life at home.
