A loan of $400 helped to purchase shoes for women, men, and children.


Alice's story

Alice is 42, is a widow, and is the mother of two adult children who work independently. She sells all kinds of shoes such as tennis shoes, sandals, dress shoes, and others. She has done this work for more than two years, and her business is located in her house. She had to make some changes to be able to have enough space to sell in. Alice uses the profits from her sales to support her home, and with the help of her children they face their family expenses. Alice tells us that she has quite a few sales. This is why she wants to acquire a larger quantity of shoes so she can have enough supply for the strong demand that exists in the area where she lives and that her business has.
