A loan of $1,200 helped to buy soles, glue, and shoelaces.

Freddy Orlando's story

Freddy lives in Guayaquil, and he is an enterprising man. He started his business of making shoes a few years ago. When he was left without work, he had to start a business activity in order to generate income for his family.

His business improved little by little. He now has a business where he makes all types of shoes. In order to make the shoes he needs leather, glue, and soles, etc. He has a lot of aspirations with his business because he has three children who are still little.

Therefore, he wants the loan to buy materials for shoes and to make a greater volume. This way he will be able to sell more shoes to more customers. Specifically, he wants to buy soles, glue, and shoelaces.
