A loan of $1,700 helped to buy fertilizer and hoses to get ahead with his own flower crops.

Luis Alberto's story

Luis Alberto is married and has 2 children of 3 and 17 years of age. He has always wanted to bring to them a good quality life and to do this he has worked hard in the business of growing flowers. With his salary he can contribute the required earning for his house. Thanks to having acquired a lot of experience in his work, he now is seeking to have his own flower business, something that he has always dreamed of. For this reason, he is seeking a loan that allows him to buy fertilizer and hoses to get ahead by growing his own flowers.

About 10 days ago he planted his first flower seeds in a plot of land that he rented. Thanks to the good handling that he has given the flowers, favorable results are already presenting themselves. His greatest dream is to have his own crops and be able to generate greater earnings than what he currently makes with his job and be able to move his family forward. He also has the dream of having his own house and bringing his family home security.
