Luis's story

Luis is from the Santani district. He's married and owns a well-stocked business offering a good selection with all the typical items sold in a basic grocery store. He has a steady clientele that provides a good monthly income that helps him support his family to keep on living a dignified life.

Luis comes from a family from the countryside and also is a farmer. He plants manioc, corn, peanuts and vegetables and he also raises livestock such as milk bearing cows and cows for fattening.

He would like to increase the selection he offers at his store because the earnings are good and also his wife and children are able to tend the shop.

He is requesting the loan to buy sugar, rice, flour, dairy products and baked goods because his goal is to keep growing his business.
