A loan of $1,250 helped to buy leather.

Ernesto's story

Ernest is 56 years old and lives in the city of Itá with his wife. For 16 years, he has been earning a living making saddlery in his own home.

Ernesto has been a client of the foundation since 2007 because through the loans that they have granted he went on growing as a mico-entrepreneur and thus expanded his products to the rest of the country.

The loan that he is requesting is to buy leather that was offered to him at a low price because his normal price is a little high and, in this way, he wants to be able to continue growing and improving his products.
