A loan of $1,100 helped to make some structural improvements to his parking lot so that his customers continue using it.


Luis Eduardo's story

Luis Eduardo runs a parking lot and is well known for the good customer service that he provides. Luis Eduardo has always been a very friendly person and his customers always prefer to use his services rather than those of others.

At 68 years of age, Luis Eduardo is single. He has a son who helps him in his free time. Luis Eduardo has a parking lot and, thanks to this parking lot, he has been able to make the income he needs to support his household.

Lately, Luis Eduardo has had a good number of customers and his parking lot has suffered from this in that his installations have become a little worn by supporting the passage of so many cars.

As he does not want to lose customers owing to the state of repair of his parking lot, Luis Eduardo would like to make some physical improvements to his lot. However, he does not have the capital he needs to carry out this work. For this reason, he hopes to receive a loan which will allow him to make the structural improvements he needs to so that his customers continue visiting him and preferring his business over others.

Luis Eduardo dreams of his parking lot becoming better known and making him more income than it does right now. This would enable him to provide jobs for those who need them most.

In addition, Luis Eduardo dreams of his son having the opportunity to study at university which will allow him to gain a well-paid job.
