A loan of $600 helped to buy tomatoes, onions, meat, sodas, and juices.


Luis Manuel's story

Luis decided to request another loan in order to buy vegetables to re-stock his business. During the holidays, demand for his products greatly increases, so he plans to buy more tomatoes, onions, meat, sodas, juices, and other basic food items. Luis fared very well with his previous loan; his sales increased, as did his earnings. Because of this, he was able to provide for his family. He hopes to be able to offer them a better quality of life.

Luis will also continue to work doing auto repairs in his shop, which serves as an additional source of income for his family.
