Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos Alberto is 44 years old, he is single but has two children, 18 and 15 years old, who study at the university and high school. They live in Portoviejo, a city affected by the earthquake on April 16, 2016 and now by the Covid -19 pandemic. The city is rich in the production of vegetables, legumes, and tropical fruits for domestic consumption.

Carlos Alberto owns a funeral home and workshop where they make mortuary chests. This locale is rented. He works every day 24 hours a day because his clients call him at any time to help them with funeral services. During this global crisis of the pandemic, he sold funeral services but only the coffins. Coffins became scarce, but currently the market has stabilized.

With this new loan, he will buy wood, fabrics, paints, among other materials to continue making coffins. In his family, four relatives fell ill with Covid-19 and are recovering little by little. His dream to have property where he can install his workshop and wake room.
