Rubén Luis
Rubén Luis C. is married and lives in the suburb of Virgen del Rosaio. Rubén is very hard-working and has worked selling decorative paintings for 7 years. He began with a small amount of capital, and thanks to the good relationship he has with his customers his business has continued to grow. Today he has a location where he exhibits his products for sale, with the necessary comforts for his customers. He is seeking a loan to purchase wood and laminates to increase his product offering and thereby satisfy the demands of his customers, especially for festival days including Mother's Day (15 May) and in the end increase earnings for his family unit. Rubén is thankful to the Fundación and Kiva for the help that they have given him in facilitating his work.
