Braulio's story

Braulio, 62, is a shoemaker. He is married to Maria, 66. Together they have a son, who they have worked hard to raise as a respectable person.

He started his business more than 20 years ago with his own shoe shop, but as the years passed and foreign shoes started to come onto the market, he set it aside to set up another small business. He was quite successful and was able to buy a property where he also set up a laundry. Since then, he has gone back to his job as a shoemaker which he still does today. He is a very hard-working person who in spite of any difficulties, wants to continue working and improving.

He is asking for this loan to buy imitation leather and supplies for his laundry. He appreciates the help that he is getting.
