A loan of $1,325 helped to buy sodas and beer in larger quantities.


Luis Ramos's story

Luis, a 36-year-old, is the owner of a business that offers billiards and sells sodas and alcoholic beverages. Four years ago, he began the business after he was let go from the job where he was working. He used his unemployment earnings to begin the business. Initially, he bought the products through a friend who is a businessman until he met the suppliers. Now, he buys directly from them. Luis' goal is to make his business grow and bring his two children forward. His greatest challenge is having enough working capital to be able to buy the products that he sells in larger quantities. This is the reason that he has turned to a loan, his first funding from the Fundacion Mario Santo Domingo, with which he will buy sodas and beer in larger quantities. This way, he will be able to have enough inventory to provide the product that his customers enjoy the most: beer, especially when it is consumed in a place where they can also enjoy playing billiards with their friends.
