Luis Humberto's story

Luis Humberto is single and lives in the family home in the parish of San Roque, which is part of
Atuntaqui. San Roque is a place where indigenous people make handicrafts such as dream catchers, tapestriess and local blouses.

Luis Humberto works as a mobile DJ in different cities and has been doing this for some years. This has been his source of income to cover any need or cost he has had or any activity he has needed to carry out. He does this work at parties in the local neighbourhood and surrounding areas, and he also performs at events such as weddings, baptisms and confirmations. He provides musical entertainment to homes, and apart from that he adds life to parties to make them pleasant and to encourage his customers to recommend him to others. In this way he can continue his work and attract more customers for his services. Luis learnt his work from his father, who did the same job, and today he really wants to carry on doing it. He works at events from the time he is contracted, typically during evenings and nights. His sessions last 10 hours or more and that's why he needs to buy amplifiers with more power output so he can provide a better service. He is going to buy them with the loan he is requesting. Luis is grateful to Fundación Alternativa and to KIVA for the opportunity they are providing to improve his business and make it prosper.
