A loan of $575 helped to buy leather and supplies for making school shoes.


Miguel Angel's story

Miguel is a 20 year old youth and at his young age he has had to assume great responsibilities due to the death of his father. His family has worked for a long time making shoes in a little workshop located in his home, a legacy that today he has taken over since he is the eldest male. He works during the afternoon with his mother because he goes to school in the morning.

His greatest dream is to be able to create his own brand to increase earnings and to guarantee his family better opportunities in life. For the sake of his business project, he is asking for a loan to buy leather and supplies in order to make school shoes, in order to take advantage of the product demand in the student season.

His mother and his siblings are his greatest priority. His biggest challenge is to be able to offer greater financial stability.
