A loan of $300 helped to buy shoe making supplies.


Germán De Jesús's story

Germán is a 46 year old man who has had to live with an increasingly violent society. Displaced by the violence, he relocated to the city of Bello, Colombia, where he began looking for work. Out of a need to generate an income, he worked in a shoe repair shop where he learned the trade.

Through discipline he was able to save some money with which he started his own shoe repair shop. There he makes all kinds of repairs. His life has improved considerably but he would like to make it better. He is asking for this loan so that he can buy supplies to be able to begin making shoes, expand his services, and generate more income so that he can enjoy a dignified life. His greatest dream is to be become a great entrepreneur and build a grand shoe making and sales business.
