Luis Alberto's story

Luis Alberto is 47 years old. He is a man full of dreams and goals to reach. He says that after he studied in school, he learned about the craft of carpentry thanks to instruction given by a relative.

When he finished his degree, Alberto decided to start working in this sector since the financial condition of his family prohibited access to higher education. After perfecting his craft in the different workshops where he worked, he decided to become independent and open his own workshop, where he makes all kinds of furniture. He has been doing this activity for 29 years and feels grateful that thanks to his work he can support his family and offer education to his two children.

He is currently asking for a loan in order to buy supplies in order to improve his productivity and increase his sales in order to begin saving and buying a house in order to offer his family a better quality of life.
