Luis Eduardo's story

Luis is 46 years old and lives with his partner and daughter in his own home in the department of Santa Ana. He has a business selling plastic items and clothing. Luis gets up very early in the morning to sell his items because he is a hard-working man who thinks what you acquire through hard work is what you love the most. Luis really values his job and is very proud to provide a good example for his daughter. He is one of the best merchants in the place where he works, selling his products at a good price. At this time, he has increased his clientele and is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Apoyo Integral so he can purchase buckets, crates, jugs, clothing and other items. In this way he can meet the needs of his customers who are always coming back to his business. He hopes through these means he will be able to provide his family the quality of life they deserve by giving them economic stability.
