Nuris Alicia
Nuris is a strong mother of two beautiful children who is dedicated to her job, selling food to achieve some stability. Together with her husband she was able to build a concrete house. Although it has a dirt floor, it is a dignified place. Her husband works as a driver, and his wages, though consistent, are low. They have not been able to make improvements to their home since Nuris' sales are low, although she hasn't stopped trying, and the money she makes goes back into buying products and paying for basic services like water and electricity, along with medication for her children, who were sick during the winter. Her goal is to improve her home's floor to make it more hygienic. With the loan she is requesting, Nuris plans to purchase basic grains, snacks, dairy products, meats, chicken, canned goods and vegetables so she can increase her sales and cover her expenses. She is happy because in this way she can continue investing in her business.
