A loan of $5,350 helped to increase marketing and inventory for his shoe business.

Joseph's story

Joseph repairs shoes the traditional way: he sews them by hand. He is widely recognized for being one of the last cobblers in his area. Some even say he’s the best shoemaker in town! Anyone who has been to Joseph’s store knows that he works six days a week and eleven hours a day, without ever taking a day off.

Joseph, originally from Africa, received his training in shoe repair in Germany. After moving to the U.S., he opened his own shoe store, which he has now had for over 20 years. Joseph has kept alive what many would call a lost art. In order to sustain his business, Joseph has requested a loan. This loan will allow him to buy more inventory and increase his marketing. Joseph knows his hard work and commitment to his craft will continue to pay off!
