A loan of $1,000 helped to buy coconuts wholesale.


Luis Alonso's story

Luis lives in his own home with his wife and three children. He has sold coconut water for several years, and sells on the streets in the various nearby neighbourhoods. He has many customers because he is a very kind, hard-working, honest and honourable man. With his income, he is able to cover some of the household costs. Luis is requesting a loan for the wholesale purchase of coconuts so that he can continue with his business; it is his only source of income for providing his family with greater economic stability.
