Luis Alfonso's story

Luis is a real fighter who made a great effort to get his fruit and vegetables selling business ahead. He buys his range of fruit and vegetables in bulk in a rural area of his municipality and then he distributes them in small quantities from house to house, in restaurants and shops. The great difficulty that Luis faces is that his mode of transportation is a bicycle, but lately he has had an increase in the distribution of his products and has had to pay a motorcycle taxi service to deliver his customers' orders. This has increased his costs considerably. To improve this situation Luis is looking for a loan in order to buy a motorbike with which he can distribute his fruit and vegetables all around the municipality.

His dream is to have a large business with a well stocked store in his municipality and to be able to offer a become income to his family.
