Luis Alfonso's story

Luis Alfonso has worked in the shoe business for 38 years. Eight years ago, he decided to set up his own shoe repair shop at home. He works every day with the help of a relative. Luis Alfonso has now made this business a source of income for his family, which allows him to pay for the education of his two children.

He is requesting a loan so that he can buy supplies such as dyes, synthetics, thread, and glue. Luis Alfonso will also pay for structural improvements so that his shop will have a better appearance. He dreams of designing and producing shoes on a large scale, but he is aware that he does not have the necessary funds. For this reason, he will start saving so that he can make this dream a reality.
