Luis Fernando's story

Luis Fernando A. is a determined man who has been selling watches and accessories for several years now in order to get his family ahead in life. He started out as an itinerant street vendor but, with his entrepreneurship and discipline, he saved his profits from his sales until he was able to buy a small location where he could keep his products in an organized space.

Luis Fernando is a dreamer and, with the hope of watching his business grow, he gradually obtained a fixed and stable sales location from which he could serve his customers. He currently mends watches and sells all kinds of accessories such as belts, caps, wristbands, etc. Luis Fernando doesn't have enough capital to buy merchandise and thereby offer his customers a wider variety of products. His biggest wish is to some day own a large store and be well known for offering good-quality, stylish products and a lot of variety.
