Luis Fernando's story

Luis is 32 years old and is known as an entreprising and dynamic young man with a knack for business. His business savvy can be seen in the work he has done for the past five years after he branched out to be his own boss. He opened a restaurant where he works with another employee. It is well located on a heavily trafficked street in the center of town and, despite all the competition, he is confident in his business because he sells products that are different and innovative.
His biggest dream is to strengthen and position his business even better so that he is guaranteed profits and to be able to give his family a better quality of life and well-being, especially his son who will soon be born.
All of this motivates Luis to ask for a loan and, with that money, improve his business, purchasing wholsale stock like vegetables, meat, grains and more. With supplies, he will have more available and be able to meet the demand for his products and to satisfy his customers tastes, while simultaneously increasing sales and income for his family.
