Milton Martin's story

Milton is a humble resident of Granada. He’s 32-years-old, has a spouse and is father of two children aged 3 and 8; one attends fourth grade and the other one is still too young to go to school. He’s a merchant. He works manufacturing and selling shoes. He’s owned the business for more than two years. He started out in commerce since a young age helping his father but then became independent and decided to start his own grocery store. But when he separated from his first wife she left the store to her so she could manage it and he currently works making and selling shoes, a business that generates daily income and gives him much satisfaction because he does well and has a regular clientele.

His expectation is to make the business grow. Milton asks for the loan to buy leather, soles, glue, nails, etc. to make shoes since he feels this loan will help him buy all the raw materials needed to make shoes. His objective is to provide better customer service and his future plan is to offer very good quality shoes at better prices.
