A loan helped to buy leather and glue.


Juan's story

Juan, 33, is married and has five children. He lives in a town in Jesús de Otoro, Intibucá. He has earned a living making shoes for women, men, and children for 14 years. His workshop is in his house and he sells his products in the local markets.

This is Juan's fourth loan cycle with the institution. He's requesting 16,000 lempiras [HNL] to buy leather, glue, and other materials he needs to make shoes. In this academic season he has greater demand to cover.

His goal is to set up a complete shop with more machines to supply his customers.
