William Alberto
View original language description ↓
William Alberto is dedicated to the sale of electronic household items and new and used clothing. He opened this business 11 years ago by selling just clothes and established a fixed point. Today, his sales are also conducted by travelling from area to area.

William's plans for his business are to augment salest in order to offer a better quality of service to his clients. He would also like to, in the future, be able to have a store for these products. William Alberto is married with four children that are of schooling age. His wife supports and helps him with his business.

They live in the Villa Reconciliacion neighborhood, an area where juvenile delinquincy has increased. For this reason William is asking for a loan in order to purchase material and build a wall behind his house and in this way provide more security for his family.
