Luis manufactures aluminum pots at his house and sells them as a street vendor in the central park of Cojutepeque and at the market. He produces a set number of pots based on previous orders.

Luis is requesting a loan so that he can buy a large quantity of aluminum and paint so that he can produce more pots and meet the increasing demand. The sales of his products have been very stable throughout the years, which has permitted him to get ahead and encouraged him to invest further in his business.
