A loan of $600 helped purchase aluminum & paint for making pots.

Luis Humberto's story

Luis Humberto D. is 50 years old and resides in Cojutepeque, which is located in the Department of Cuscatlán. He lives with his wife, who is in charge of the household chores, and their only child. Luis manufactures aluminum pots at his house and sells them as a street vendor in the central park of Cojutepeque and at the market. He produces a set number of pots based on previous orders. His process for making pots is labor intensive because he has to produce them by hand and then paint them.

Luis has been dedicated to his business for 20 years and has managed to become an expert at his job. He has several customers who place orders for multiple units to sell at other locations. Luis is requesting a loan so that he can buy a large quantity of aluminum and paint so that he can produce more pots and meet the increasing demand. The sales of his products have been very stable throughout the years, which has permitted him to get ahead and encouraged him to invest further in his business.
