Luis Fernando's story
Luis is a craftsman. He is 48 years old, married and with 5 children, who he had brought up with a lot of effort and hard work. For the past 13 years, he has been working with crafts and primitive paintings. His family supports him and he works from Monday to Saturday from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. Being a freelancer, he is able to manage his own time but his biggest challenge is that his sales are very unstable and his economy relies solely on this activity. Despite these challenges, he has been able to support his family. He is asking for this loan in order to purchase raw material (ceramics and painting products). Thanks to this loan, he will be able to stock up and increase his production. By doing that, he will be able to meet his current demand for products, which will allow him to improve the income that he receives for his work. Luis says that his main objective is to continue to grow his business and to achieve a better market position, which will allow him to make his dream of exporting his products come true and to ensure an economic stability and a better quality of life for his family.
