A loan of $700 helped buy charcoal.


Roberto's story

Roberto is 37 years old. Clara is his life partner, and they have three school age children.

Mr. R. has been working independently selling charcoal for five years. He previously worked as collector for a commercial house. He then left in order to become independent and form his own business.

He currently personally makes sales, but his objective later on is to work as a wholesaler and to have salespeople. That way he will be able to expand his work area and come to have greater income.

The loan is to buy charcoal wholesale.
