A loan of $750 helped to buy umbrellas and fabric to repair umbrellas.


Luis Hernán's story

Luis is a grown man, father of five adult children. For more than 30 years he has worked selling and repairing umbrellas in a shop in the city of Medellín. He will invest this loan in the purchase of umbrellas and fabric to repair umbrellas, to later sell them at a higher price and, in this way, earn a higher income to take care of his family. Luis dreams of making his business grow and improving his family’s income, and making his business well-known for the quality of his work.
