A loan of $1,100 helped to buy fruit, a blender, and a display case for his business.

Luis Antonio's story

Luis, age 27, lives in Playas. He started approximately five years ago. With the severance pay from his work he decided to establish his own business. It grew little by little until he came to have a place selling juice and smoothies.

He gets up at 6:00 a.m. and leaves to buy fresh fruit at the market. He does this in order to offer his customers a first quality product.

The difficulty that is a bit present in his work is the crime. However, the police are more frequently conducting operations around his business.

He is single and does not have children.

He will use the loan to buy fruit, a blender, and a display case in order to sell his juices.

In the future he wishes to be able to buy construction materials like cement, iron, and sand in order to continue progressing with the construction of his house.
