Alicia's story

She needs an additional funds to buy more merchandise like canned goods, soap, toiletries, coffee, feed, canned goods and sugar. With this, she will be able to cater to the increasing demand from the people in her community, thus increasing her income. Her income will be for school fees and food for her family.
