Arley Felipe


A loan of $850 helped to buy the supplies and materials required to complete the large footwear orders he has gotten from his customers.


Arley Felipe's story

For ten years Arley worked for a footwear manufacturing company, but because the income he generated there was insufficient to cover his home expenses, he decided to quit and assemble his own business in an effort to be able to improve the conditions of the home where he lives with his wife and their three children, ages 6, 13, and 16.

Since he had little capital, in the beginning being able to propel his business forward was very difficult, but little by little it has been improving and doing so with the great efforts made to move the business forward.

Thanks to the end-of-year season, he has large orders that he has been unable to complete due to a lack of capital. Arley is seeking a loan to buy the supplies and materials required to complete the large footwear orders he has gotten from his customers.

His dream is to have a large workshop where he can have a greater income and improve his family's quality of life.
