Luis Alfonso's story

Luis Alfonso, 34, is a man with great experience in business. Since he was young, he has been working in different establishments in his town; this is how he accumulated enough experience to start his own business.

“Although the road leading to my dream of starting a business was bumpy, I look back and realize that nothing was in vain, that everything I have experienced has led me to a better life.” With these words, Luis explains how the process started, from the first time he thought of starting the business.

Today, his family feels proud of him, because with hard work and commitment he has been able to raise his two underage children. His biggest dream is to be able to expand his business and create job opportunities for his neighbors, and this is why he is requesting a loan to restock his store. He expects to increase his income and improve his family’s quality of life.
