A loan of $575 helped to buy charcoal.


Albanio's story

Albanio is 58 years old and married to Teodora. They buy, package, and sell hardwood charcoal. At first they used to buy the charcoal already packaged, but they were able to expand their storage area and they can now store up to 15,000 kg of charcoal. They buy bags and polyurethane, package the charcoal, and sell to small businesses in the zone. They make their sales from a small cart. They have a young school-aged daughter. They need this loan to buy charcoal because they are increasing their number of customers and need to increase their amount of charcoal to meet their demands. Their greatest desire it to provide an education for their daughter so that they can guarantee her a prosperous future.
