Jhon Alexander's story

Jhon, who is 22 years old, makes shoes, a trade that he learned thanks to the opportunity he had to attend a trade school. He works Monday to Sunday from 8 am to 6 pm. This business has allowed him to earn an income that he uses to support his household, which is composed of his mother and younger brother.

His biggest dream is to be able to strengthen his business and make way for a major company. For this reason, he is requesting a loan to purchase a polishing machine and basic materials (leather strips, cords, buckles, soles, and linings) as well as maintain a machine. The goal is to grow his sales and improve his financial situation.
