A loan of $1,050 helped to expand his business.

Víctor's story

In Chichicastenango three boys, ages 8, 10, and 12, are running to school and telling their friends that their father, Victor, age 29, has been selling shoes for the whole family for eight years. Meanwhile, there are two girls, ages 3 and 6, left at home. Victor’s daughters accompany their father in the business.

An idea crosses Victor’s mind to have his own place, which will provide his business with security. This would also enable better attention to his customers, one of the best ways to offer quality service.

Immediately, the need to request a loan arises. It is the determining factor in order to expand his business. The result will be improving the support of his family.
