A loan of $1,100 helped to buy more staple goods to sell in his business and offer a greater variety of products to his customers.


Luis's story

Luis is married and has three children. Thanks to his hard work over a long period of time he has managed to buy his own house and start his own business there, which is a general store where he offers staple goods. In his own house, which he has had for the past 2 months, Luis and his family have been able to have a better quality of life, for which he is very grateful and continues working very hard to keep advancing.

Due to the fact that he started his business with very little capital, Luis is hoping that a loan will allow him to buy more staple goods to sell in his business and offer a greater variety of products to his customers. This way his customers will find his store to be more attractive and thus his sales will increase considerably. Also, with a greater income his family will be able to have a better quality of life and better economic opportunities in order to advance.
