A loan of $725 helped to buy rice flour, butter, and sugar in quantity so he can make more bread to meet the demand of his customers.

Luis Alberto's story

Luis is 20 years old. He works making bread from rice flour. His bakery is located in the town of Torno.

This loan is his second cycle with the institution. Luis is going to use the loan to buy rice flour, butter and sugar in bulk since he has a large capacity oven and wants to increase production in order to satisfy the demand of his customers.

Luis faces challenges in his business such as competition from a bakery that produces in bulk. With this loan he will improve his earnings. Luis is a young person eager to get ahead and is happy and grateful with the institution for the support given because this is his only source of income to maintain himself.
