Luis Manuel
Luis Manuel is married and has three children who are still dependent on him. His youngest son is in primary and the others are in secondary school. Since he was very young, Luis helped his father in his work as an ironmonger. As a result Luis grew a liking for and the skills to design doors, windows, patio doors and to do all other kinds of work that Luis's father used to do. As time went on, Luis married and had his own family but he continued working alongside his father. By now he had a dream of opening his own ironmongery and welding workshop so for many years Luis and his wife went without certain things as they saved up money to start a business. Luis started off with just equipment for welding and repairing metal doors but his business has grown a lot since he started the business nine years ago. He now needs a small van so that he can deliver orders such as doors, windows, gates, shop windows and the like. Luis has saved up money to buy the car but he just needs a little more. He is grateful for your support.
