Leonardo's story

Leonardo is 35 years old, married, and the father of 8 children who he has gotten ahead with great effort.

During his lifetime he has worked on his own, repairing leather items, and learned this by watching. This has become his main source of income and he has been doing this for many years, so he is well known in the area. He also passes out flyers in other adjacent neighborhoods in order to attract new customers and generate more income to support his family.

He is asking for his first loan to buy supplies in quantity (leather, thread, needles, leather polish, etc.). This will allow him to fill his customer orders and have items on hand.

Leonardo looks to the future, changing his residence so he can be in a more visible location and accessible to his customers. This way his sales will improve and he can provide his family with better living conditions for his family and a better education for his son.
