A loan of $575 helped to buy pulse.

Luis Alfredo's story

Luis Alfredo is 55 years old and he has a 12-year-old son. All of his life he has been engaged in different activities in order to earn the money for his family and to grant them their staple food. Seven months ago he decided to invest his savings in the purchase of cakes and sweets that he sells from a room of his house. He has come up with this job idea because his severe backache prevents him from engaging in heavy jobs. Luis hopes that his new project will grant him a goof income as this is the only source of income he has to provide for himself and his family. By observing his neighbors and taking their advice Luis has decided to ask for a loan to buy pulse, as no one else in his area sells this type of product.
He dreams of being able to grant a better standard of living to his family and to make improvements to his house, as the rain has destroyed it many times because his house has not been built with waterproof materials.
