Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos Alberto F. T. is 50 years old, lives in Arce City in the La Libertad district. He lives with his wife and four children, who are all studying. Carlos has owned a bakery for 10 years, a business which is mostly run by his wife. He, himself, works as a farmer and he uses his pick-up to work as a private driver. Carlos is seeking this loan in order to be able to buy corn and beans for planting and at the same time buy ingredients for bread, which he sells in the area where he lives. Carlos is a very hard-working man, and he, together with his wife, make an effort in many ways to be able to provide a better life for his four children. They work very hard but their reward is the recognition that their children can count on having all the basics in order to prosper and to be able to continue their studies.
