Alberto worked for many years in a water-bottling company; his salary was very low and insufficient. Tired of the situation and with the help of his wife, he started selling fruit cocktails, for which he acquired a tricycle cart. They traveled through the streets where there were many passers-by, and little by little formed their customer base. When his sales started improving, he decided to set up a little store in his home so that his wife could tend to it while he continued selling in the streets. With much effort, they have managed to prosper, and he now needs support to purchase more stock and increase his sales.

He needs a loan for US $450, which he will repay in 4 months, to purchase merchandise and offer a wider variety of fruits and vegetables in his store.
