A loan of $825 helped to purchase household goods and vegetables.


Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos Alberto, 49, is a father of two children who are his main reason to come out ahead. He says that his only asset is made up of a public taxi service, which was his only source of income to support his family. A neighbour who was a shop owner suggested to him that he change businesses to which he agreed. Today he feels highly satisfied because he believes the profits are better.

Because his business is growing, Carlos is asking for a loan which he will invest in the purchase of household goods and vegetables with the purpose of improving his product portfolio.

He hopes that with this investment he can guarantee his children quality education and an improvement in their lives.
