Luis Alberto's story

Luis Alberto is married, and has three grown children. He is from one of the municipalities of Chinandega and has a small business in his own home; he has a sewing workshop where he makes pants and shirts. He also makes women's and children's clothing. He generally makes his purchases in stores for cash. He makes his sales for cash and on credit to his customers, some of whom are fixed clients. For purchases made on credit, he charges on the fifteenth and thirtieth of every month. Luis has already taken out several loans with the institution and has proven himself to be responsible with his monthly payments, which he has repaid without any problem. He will use this loan for the purchase of sewing materials. He thanks the Kiva lenders for their support of people of low economic resources in places like Nicaragua.
