Luis Emilio's story

Luis gets up every day with great enthusiasm to do what he likes most, cook and prepare with his wife delicious dishes which they offer to their customers. He previously obtained a loan from Kiva through MiCrédito, which he used to start a fruit and vegetable sales business.

He is currently asking MiCrédito for a another loan with Kiva funds. Luis will use the money to buy rice, beans, sugar, oil, condiments, meat, soft drinks, fruits and vegetables; in order to offer his customers more dishes in his menu and stock his stall with a wide variety of fruits and vegetables.

In the future, Luis would like to be able to expand his business to offer employment to others, who need it, contribute to the country's economic growth and earn a better income for his family.
