A loan of $600 helped to buy earth from the gold mines, which is his raw material.

Luis Adrian's story

Luis Adrián is 38 years old, married, and has five children, ages 7, 12, 13, 16, and 18. They all go to school; some in high school, others in primary school and university.

Previously, Luis sold livestock, but he has stopped doing this work and instead works in mining. His business consists of buying earth at the gold mines to grind and process, in order to produce gold. For this, he has a grinder located at his home, where he processes the earth and sells it to the gold buyers in the town of Somotillo.

Luis, thanks to the responsible way he operates his business, has been able to succeed. Now he has the support provided through the loans, so that he can invest in his business. Now he is again requesting financing to invest in the purchase of earth from the mines, which is his raw material and is very productive.
