A loan of $3,050 helped to buy machinery and supplies.

Ruth Cintya's story

Señora Ruth is 24 years old. She is single and has a son who depends on her income. She went to school through a technical level in fabrication of shoes and computerized design. She works in a workshop and makes leather shoes; her work is putting soles on shoes, and she has a year of experience in this job. On the side, she has a second business, food service, where she has three years of experience selling food in the mornings. She is now applying for a loan to buy machines and supplies so that in the future she can work [on her own] soling shoes.
