Luis Carlos's story

After having worked for some time as a lab assistant, Luis Carlos decided to set up his own business making plastic containers. After a while he had an idea for creating an innovative product, a device for administering medicine to children. He patented his idea.

At 61 years old, Luis Carlos considers himself to be a great entrepreneur and he hopes to be able to sell his product not only in Colombia but also internationally. He hopes to gradually fulfil his dream. For now, he needs a loan to buy supplies for making his devices so that he can start selling his product.
