Luis is a 35-year-old man who has a great desire to boost his seafood business over the next few years. Luis' is a business that comes from his dad who has been in this trade for more than 30 years. 15 years ago, Luis decided to start working for himself. He carries out his work alone every day. He buys seafood in the port of Santa Rosa and makes his sales in Daule. He does not experience any difficulties. Luis is married and his wife sells clothes as an itinerant vendor. They have four children, three of whom attend a state school. Luis' dream is to deliver seafood to hotels wholesale. He would like this loan for his business selling seafood such as shrimp, fish and crabs.
