Alberto is a married man and a father of four from Trinidad, Bohol. He has been engaged in a charcoal-making business for more than three years. This is the source of his income.
Alberto is asking for a loan to buy more wood and coconut shells for charcoal making. Through this, he will be able to make more charcoal and sell it in the market. Alberto dreams of exploring another venture to augment his income so that he can support his family, especially the schooling of his children.
