One of them is Alba, who works in baking. She said her job has enabled her to be able to give her family the best and so they don't have to suffer any hardship. She's an enterprising woman with a desire to improve and get ahead as a way to improve herself every day.

She's requesting this loan to be able to buy baking ingredients such as flour, eggs, shortening, sugar, and other products so she can continue working as she has been.
