A loan of $575 helped to buy construction materials and stock his business with more variety to offer his customers.

Luis Alberto's story

Luis has worked in companies for more than 10 years, but he has been running his own business since 18 months ago when he decided to set up a hardware store where he sells construction materials using the small amount of savings that he had.

With this business, Luis has been able to overcome financial difficulties in his household, as he is the head of the household where he lives with his 8-year-old son that his mother abandoned. Through his business, Luis has had to make a lot of effort but it has grown little by little in response to those efforts that he makes and this has progressively enabled him to improve sales and as such, the income. However, the low level of available capital that he has causes him to miss out on large sales and that is why Luis is seeking a loan to buy construction materials and stock his business with a greater variety of goods to offer to his customers.

His dream is to improve his household's income so that his son can have a better quality of life and a better school education.
