Joel Alberto's story

34-year-old Joel Alberto lives together with his family. His family consists of his 31-year-old wife and his two children who are 9 and 3 years old. His business is selling chickens, eggs and drinks. With a lot of effort and God's help, he has managed to keep his business running for several years and this has enabled him to provide his household with their daily bread. His wife takes care of the housework and helps a little with the business. They do not have any additional source of income.

Joel Alberto is an incredible man because he uses his bicycle to sell his products in communities near his home. He has been in this business for several years and already has a lot of experience and good references from his neighbors. He has some regular customers who prefer to buy from him because he is an honest, charming and responsible man. His dream is to provide his family with better living conditions. This motivates him to work hard to achieve his dream as his family are the most important thing in the world to him.

Joel Alberto decided to request a loan from INTEGRAL in order to invest in his business, buying chickens, eggs, drinks etc. This will help him to attract more customers and make his business more profitable which will enable him to fulfill his dream of providing his family with better living conditions.
