Norberto Antonio's story

Norberto es a person that has had to overcome much adversity in his life. However his desire to work has enabled to him to move forward together with his family. Before Norberto worked as a carrier for a business which made for long journey to be undertaken. He didn't have much contact with his family and this discouraged him a lot. After this, the situation of public order was delicate for a time, which meant he had to abandon his job as a carrier and look for other alternatives to generate the necessary income to sustain the expenses of the household. Since then, Norberto set up a bar where he serves snacks, soda, and liquor to his customers. Additionally he has a pool table. Thanks to this work, Norberto can generate the necessary income for his wife and son and is able to spend much more time with them. Norberto, forced to set up his business with very little economic resources, he still had to purchase supplies that allowed him to offer a good service to his customers. It is for this that Norberto hopes that a loan provides him with the opportunity of accessing the purchase of a refrigerator where he can store the liquor and soda and offer them in a better state to his customers.

Norberto hopes that he is able to access this refrigerator without seeing his monthly income affected and in this way he is able to continue offering a good quality of life to his family. Norberto dreams of consolidating his business and being known by many customers and in this way be able to have bigger sales that allow him to generate employment for those most vulnerable in the region. Additionally, Norberto dreams of his business providing him the opportunity of accessing the purchase of his own home.
