A loan of $850 helped to buy raw materials (animal hide, glue, soles).


Kuma's story

Kuma is a cobbler by trade and opened his workshop in 2006. He makes shoes and at times during the year experiences a slump in sales. His second loan will enable him to buy raw materials (animal hide, glue, soles) to make shoes. He would like to be able to provide for his children's education while at the same time being able to carry out his business in the long term (he is married and father to two children).
