Alberto Ernesto
Alberto, who is from Portoviejo, is being presented here. He recalls that his career started as a journeyman in the construction business. However, the jobs were sporadic, so a friend recommended that he start selling water. Alberto works by himself as a traveling vendor, going to different areas of the city from morning to afternoon. He does not face any major problems. Alberto is married to Maria Yolanda, who helps with the expenses by selling merchandise through catalogs. They have two children, ages 10 and 16, who attend a state school.

Alberto will use this loan to acquire containers of water, legumes, and cheese so that he can increase his sales. His goal for the future is to buy a vehicle so that he will have an easier time selling his products.
