Alia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy vegetables for pickling, which she produces at home.
Alia is a symbol of strife because she raised four daughters on her own after her husband's death. She refused to remarry for their sake and as far as earning an income goes, she has been working as a farmer. She also sells pickles, which she produces at home. She says that her husband's death left her in charge of four orphans and that she has no trade that she can feed them from and because of her families financial difficulties, hasn't had a university education or degree. Her mother found it best for Alia to get married after high school and approved of her husband. She had no resort but farming and she works the field and in her kitchen, she makes pickles. She is her daughters' mother and father and wishes to open a store to sell pickles. It will allow her to reach the biggest number of customers possible.
