Luis Miguel
Young Luis is single and lives in his parent's house. He has a business buying and selling scrap metal (scrap metal recycling.) He chose this type of work because he has relatives who are also in this line of business. He has been doing this work for more than 4 years. He transports these materials with a bike that he owns that has an attached cart. One obstacle that Luis faces is that the bike/cart he has is very small and cannot hold a lot of material, so he has to make two trips a day carrying this merchandise to the stores where he sells it. Luis is requesting a loan so that he can add a storage facility onto his parent's house. Here he will be able to store the recyclable materials that he collects every day so that he can sell these materials weekly, which will give him more time to recycle more materials. Luis is very grateful for the assistance that is being provided to him.
