Eduard Alberto's story

Eduard Alberto, 34, is an enterprising man who wants to get ahead. At the age of 19 he began to work in a family business making dolls and stuffed animals, which he distributed in various department stores in the city and the towns of Antioquia, Colombia.

Today he's in charge of the business because his mother isn't able to work because of her age. This is why his work has increased and he needs to generate more income to support his mother, his wife, and his daughter, age 9.

Acting on his desire to get his family ahead and improve his quality of life, Eduard's requesting a loan to invest in buying raw materials so he can increase his sales and his income.

His biggest dreams are to be able to give his mother a decent old age without worries and to guarantee his daughter a good education.
