Alberto's story

Alberto was born in the department of Cusco and still lives in the same town where he was born. He is 67 years old and lives with his common-law wife with whom he has two children. He belongs to Los Comerciantes De Virgen Asunta Community Bank, and all is going well as he makes his loan repayments punctually.

Alberto makes shoes and has a small workshop in his home. He's had the business for several years and is doing well. This time Alberto needs a loan to buy supplies such as leather, glue, thread, needles, polish etc. He is grateful for the loan and promises to make the repayments according to the established schedule.
