Luis Eduardo's story

Luis Eduardo, 54, has worked selling fish for over 40 years in his locality. He started this line of work already as a child, since he could not study due to his family’s economic condition and had to take charge of the home’s responsibilities.

Luis Eduardo started selling fish in his neighborhood with a polystyrene container. With effort and time, he saved money and bought a vehicle that allowed him to expand his reach. He is now distributing his products in different municipalities of the Antioquia department, in Colombia.

His vehicle is in bad shape, so Luis had to stop the distribution of his products. This situation has considerably harmed his economy, since this is his only source of income and the way he supports his wife and four children. This is why he is requesting a loan to fix his car and restart with his activities in order to offer his family a better quality of life.
