A loan of $1,575 helped to buy a machine to glue soles and to buy raw material to increase his production capacity.


Sergio Alberto's story

Sergio worked for a shoe company for many years. With the experience he acquired he decided to set up his own business as he was seeking a way to make financial progress. He produces tennis shoes, boots, ankle boots, and sandals at his shoe factory. Thanks to the good quality of his products, he has been able to have good sales.

Sergio is known for being very organized with the business, very entrepreneurial, and very tenacious about getting his wife and two children, ages 17 and 19, ahead.

His current production capacity is less than his customer demand. That is why he is looking for a loan to buy a machine to glue soles and to buy raw material to increase his production capacity.

His dream is to get his business ahead, and to be able to generate more employment to help other people get ahead. He also aims for his two children to be able to have a university education and to be able to have a better quality of life at home.
