Luis Ramon's story

Luis is a business person, the father of six children, only two of whom are in his charge. He is the proprietor of a general store, which he has run for four years with much effort and optimism. He is a man with many goals in life, among which stand out being able to offer his children a better style of life and supporting their education, which is very valuable.

Luis had one previous experience with loans from MiCrèdito and Kiva, with which he bought rice, beans, oil, sugar, tomato sauce, matches, juices, and salt. He is pleased by having improved his business and of course his income for his family. Now once again he needs to expand his business, and so he has returned to the loans from these two organizations to buy rice, beans, oil, personal hygiene products, coffee, cheese, salt, flour, sardines, and other products. In the not-distant future, he is considering making his business a distributorship.
