Henry Milagro's story

Henry, 34, is married and has two children who attend a nearby public school. His father taught him the family trade, making sandals and sneakers. Seven years ago, he started his own business making footwear. He and his wife now work together seven days a week from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. He will use the loan to buy leather, insoles, lasts, yellow glue, and more. His goal is to expand his business so that he can teach the trade to others and provide jobs.
