Luis Alonso's story

Luis is a tailor, he is 49 years old and lives in the Berlin department of Usulutan with his wife and 2 children, who are 17 and 18 years old. He started his tailor shop 25 years ago. He does not have a set schedule, as the shop is set up in his home, which makes it difficult to establish a schedule. He would like to invest in materials for his tailor shop, for which he is requesting a loan to purchase different types and colors of fabric, as well as thread and buttons, to produce clothes. This investment will help him diversify the inventory of fabrics available to his customers, so he can better attend to them and their needs. For Luis, the goals for his tailor shop are to improve every day, offer good service, increase the number of customers and increase his family's income.
