A loan of $1,100 helped to buy a barber's machine and set up a suitable space.

Fernando Luuis's story

Fernando, who is 31, affirms that to advance himself, he only needs effort and good opportunities. For five years he has worked as a barber, a trade that he learned empirically and that has constituted the source of income for him and his family. His greatest dream is to improve his business, since he only has a machine that is in bad condition because of wear and tear, and to outfit his work location, since he doesn't have the conditions to provide service. For this reason, he is applying for a loan for this investment because he lacks his own resources.

His daughters, ages 9 and 4, are his greatest motivation, which is why he works hard with the goal of offering them a better future, removed from any economic shortcomings.
