Luis Felipe


A loan of $1,775 helped to buy stock at wholesale.


Luis Felipe's story

For about ten years Luis has been working independently in his own business. Initially he set up a small snack bar but as time passed his clientele started requesting new products which has led to his business’ growth to what it’s become today.

He works alone every day of the week but on some days of the month hires a helper. He’s a hardworking, driven man who very much wants to improve every day and seeks ways to do so. This is what motivates him to seek the loan because he wants to buy stock (soft-drinks, packaged snacks, cookies and crackers, juices, coffee, sweets, etc.) at wholesale to stock up for the approaching Christmas season when display cases need to be well-stocked to meet customer demand.

Luis says that he wants to continue working even though his work is very demanding but he want to continue motivated by his wish to reach his dream of owning a house to improve his living conditions and well-being.
