A loan of $2,175 helped start up his internet cafe, buy computers and a show case.

Luis Carlos's story

Luis is a studious young man who was taking a course in systems engineering, but decided to withdraw because it was an online course and he didn't like this style of presentation. He would rather take the courses face-to-face. At 24 years of age, he is a grown man and as such needs to contribute to the household.

For this reason, he wants to ask for a loan to start an internet cafe business, offering an opportunity to young people of limited means to have access to this global tool. He has pinned his hopes on getting ahead with this business: it will be his chance to pay for tuition to a university. With the loan, he will be able to buy computers and a glass showcase with which he can formally start up his business.
