A loan of $475 helped to buy tools.


Luis Francisco's story

Luis Francisco started his business because he was not able to afford his two children's educational or health care expenses on his salary. This is the reason he began to repair polishing devices and vacuum cleaners. Thanks to this activity, he has been able to help out his family.


Luis needs a loan of $475 to buy tools that will allow him to provide better service to his clients and will therefore increase the contribution he makes toward supporting his family; he will repay the loan within 6 months.
