A loan of $300 helped to purchase raw material to make crafts.


Luis Alberto's story

Since he was young, Luis Alberto has known the law of moonlighting. Since he was 8 when his father went out with him to sell sweets in the street, he learned to be entrepreneurial and independent. Since he was young, he learned to make crafts, a job that he made into his own business and, for some years, he has worked at in the Medellin Center where he offers the products he makes to bystanders.

Luis works from Monday to Saturday until 7:30 at night when making good sales ends and he makes income to improve his quality of life and that of his family. Currently, he needs a loan for raw material like leather, thread, among other things that will allow him to improve his production and obtain greater earnings.
