Rene Alberto's story

Rene is 50 years old and lives in his own home with his wife and two children, who are 15 and 3 years old. He has been working making bricks for 6 years now and he has a lot of customers because he sells his product at a fair price. And so he is able to earn enough work in order to cover some of the household expenses. Rene is asking for a credit in order to purchase tools and materials to make more shovels. Some of these items include shovels, sand, soil and more. By making more bricks, he will earn more money and he will be able to give his family a better quality of life.
