Alberto is a 49 year old married man. For the past 7 years he has been working as a baker, specializing in Manakish (dough topped with thyme, cheese, or ground meat), pizza, and Saj bread, which looks like a Mexican tortilla and is used mainly in Arabic cultures.

Alberto is well known in his region, and his customers are very happy with what he provides them. That's why he is insisting on buying a new, larger Manakish oven, to fully satisfy his customers’ needs. He is requesting his first loan from Al Majmoua to buy this oven.

Alberto works hard on improving his family's social and financial situation. He likes his bakery a lot, and hopes to keep improving it in the future so that he can achieve more of what his customers expect.
