Luis Alejandro's story

The young Luis is a native of the city of Masaya. He is single and is 22 years old. His nuclear family consists of 4 people (his parents and a brother). He is a businessman. He has had his business for 3 years. It consists of selling used clothing and perfumes. He goes out to sell this last product door to door in the whole city of Masaya. He began this business with the objective of having income to continue going to school. He hopes to become a professional. In the day he goes out to sell, and in the evening he goes to school. Seeing how the business has worked out for him, he wants to invest in more merchandise through a loan, which will allow him to buy men's shoes, children's shoes, blenders, women's bags, children's backpacks, DVDs, cosmetics, bedspreads, various perfumes, and nintendos. It is worth mentioning that his dreams are to better himself, to have a better standard of living for his family, and to continue improving the conditions in his house and thus have a worthy home.
