Luis Angel's story

Luis Ángel sells food. He started this business two years ago. His intention was to have his own business in order to get income to support his family. His business is in the market that is frequented by his different customers.

The dishes that he sells are rice, meat, chicken, fried cheese, “maduro” (fried plantain), and fried tortillas, among others.

He is requesting a loan to buy basic grains, fruit, juices, and soft drinks. Of course, the problem that his business faces is that at times he does not have money to invest in it. This loan will help him buy more raw materials. His goal for the moment is to expand his business in order to get greater income.
