Luis Miguel's story

At 20 years of age, Luis lives with his wife and works in an ironwork, glass, and aluminum workshop, where for three years he has gained expertise and experience in this field of work. Thanks to this, and with the goal of becoming independent and generating income on his own, he wants to open a workshop that gives this type of services. It is a subject that he is passionate about, and he already knows how to manage it. To achieve this, he is asking for the support of a loan, which he will invest in the purchase of tools and raw materials (aluminum, copper, iron, glass) which he will buy wholesale. Thus he will be able to start up his business plan, from which he hopes to generate a good income to pay for the needs of his family. Although he is very young, Luis is aware of the hard work that he must give to ensure that his business is supported, sustainable, and profitable. Only in this way will he be able to have the results that he hopes for, and he will be able to guarantee economic stability for his family. Additionally, he will be able to have the capacity for an improved quality of life and will be able to enjoy a future full of success at his wife’s side.
