Luis Alberto's story

Luis Alberto is 29 years old and has been living in public housing for 5 years with his brother and mother who is financially dependent on them. Luis works at a local factory as an operator and works 10 hour days, 5 days a week. From Thursday to Sunday he prepares fresh juice from various flavors, such as: cantaloupe, banana, coco, and watermelon; with the help of his brother they sell them at the local market. He decided to start his business 3 years ago when he noticed the opportunity while working for a local refreshment company. He is very thankful to his mother for his upbringing and he worries about her well-being, he doesn´t want her to suffer the same deficiencies he did. This is why he is seeking a loan to purchase containers to showcase his juices and have the ability to offer more varieties to his customers.
