Luis Fernando's story

“There are moments in life that stay in our memory forever, memories that are more valuable than precious gems.” With this phrase, Luis Fernando, 59, relates that this is what he loves most aside from his family. His great passion is writing and this is one of the phrases he keeps in his poetry notebook. Although this is his great passion, he carries out other activities in order to meet basic household needs. For the last 25 years he’s been working in a small paint workshop located at the side of his house where he restores and paints furniture. Luis is a man who is full of dreams; he’d like to write a book someday but above all to earn good income to enjoy his old age with no economic wants. Motivated by this wish, he’s asking for a loan to buy an air compressor to improve productivity and income.
