Alberto Luiz's story

Alberto is a responsible and hard-working person. He finished primary school but could not attend secondary school because his parents had economic problems. For the same reason, he had to work from a very young age.

Alberto is single and has no children, nor any family members who depend upon his income. He lives as a tenant, lacking a house of his own.

At present Alberto works transporting passengers, using his own vehicle as a taxi. Since his auto has problems, he is requesting a loan to repair his vehicle and offer better service. This will be of great benefit, enabling Alberto to continue this activity, bringing in the income needed to cover all his costs and improve the conditions in which he lives.
