A loan of $1,100 helped to buy fruit and vegetables.

Luis Alberto's story

Luis, 37, lives in Libertad and his business is selling fruit from his house. He also works as a trash collector to earn more money but does that just from dawn until 2pm. After he finishes his job as a trash collector he works with his wife selling fruit and vegetables, from their home.

His greatest difficulty is crime because he heads out at dawn to work as a collector. He’s married, and he has two children attending public school.

He wants to use the loan to buy fruit and vegetables for his business. His dream is that his business stays stable because he’s the only source of support for his home. He also wants to be able to finish building his house because it’s currently made from sugarcane stalks and he wants to make it out of cement.
