A loan of $525 helped to buy 5 crates of shoes that contain 24 pairs each.


Marcial Salvador's story

Marcial, aged 61, runs a business with his wife. They sell used shoes at the market in Managua, in their own stall that they acquired 35 years ago.

With much hard work and dedication, they have successfully brought up six children who are now independent.

Marcial requests a seventh loan to continue supplying his business. He will buy 5 crates of shoes that contain 24 pairs each. This will allow him to continue satisfying his customers with more variety, since today second-hand shoes are in great demand, as they are affordable and durable.
