A loan of $450 helped to buy basic grocery goods.

Luis Carlos's story

Luis, 41, is father to two children for whom he strives to offer them a dignified life and better educational opportunities. His life has been plagued by mistakes and poor decisions. However, despite the situations he has lived through, he is still keen to fight for a better future for his family. Tired of searching for work and seeing the doors of opportunity closing before his eyes, Alirio decided to employ himself and set up his own business in his home. He established a small store in which he sells basic grocery goods, and over the weekends he opens a fast-food stall to the public in order to generate larger sales and provide his family with a better level of well-being. Alirio is now seeking a loan to buy stock for both of his two businesses with the aim of increasing his sales and his quality of life.
