Originally from Guatemala, Luis jumped on the opportunity to come to the United States six years ago for financial means. He has three boys still in Guatemala that rely on him heavily for financial support which he sends back to them. Luis lives in Miami now and owns a beach rental service that rents out umbrellas and beach chair to residents and tourists. He goes through seasonal rushes, but has made good relationships with local residents to keep him busy year round in this competitive market.

Luis has grown his business to now employ three other employees. He hopes that in the future he can expand his business further to employ more people and stand out as the best business in his market. Luis will use this loan to replace old chairs and umbrellas and to purchase a larger quantity to fully take advantage of the up-and-coming spring rental season.
