Luís Rey
Luis, who is 26 years old, is an entrepreneurial young man. He graduated from high school. He alone lives with his mother. His father died, and he has three brothers living in the United States, who are the ones who help his mother economically.

Luis loves music, and his business consists of installing musical equipment to liven up parties. Everything began as a hobby when a friend told him that they were going to a party and that he would set up the music and the other could set up the speakers and the audio equipment. Little by little they were called for more events, and thus it was that Luis decided to fully devote himself to this and become independent. Now the business is going well, but it always needs to be updated.

Luis needs the money because he wants to buy some screens on which he can reproduce the videos of his songs and thus the people can enjoy them more when they participate in a party.

Luis dreams of having more musical equipment that is more modern in order to thus supply several events at once, being able to form his own household, and giving a better life to his dear mother.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is part of a project to help young men and women in El Salvador (under age 26) launch their own businesses. The field partner is reducing the guarantee for these individuals, who normally would not have access to loans due to their lack of experience. Unemployment for young people is high in El Salvador, a fact that motivates many of them to leave the country instead of searching for work. Aside from access to financing, clients will also be grouped together according to their business types to receive training from CrediCampo's social development unit, and to share advice and support with one another.
