Luis is now 22, well-educated and confident. He will graduate from college this year with a degree in economics. He already works in a bank.

As part of our program, Luis’ mom joined a mothers group and became a nurse. Her career brought economic stability to the entire family.

Luis credits his parents and his sponsor for his success.

But success isn’t everything.

Unbound sponsorship not only gave Luis the opportunity to learn about business. The examples of his sponsor and the mothers group also gave him encouragement to give back.

Luis is now helping mothers groups in his community create a business strategy as they market their gorgeous handcrafted items made from alpaca wool.
