Alia Saturnina's story

Alia Saturnina, 44, has a son under her care. She is an itinerant clothing and tortilla merchant although some of her customers who know her come by her house to buy her products.

She started 6 years ago due to the lack of employment opportunities and her need to have a source of income to support her children. With much effort she has managed to survive.

This loan will be used to buy corn and clothes to keep her customers happy.

Her dream has always been to use profits from the business to obtain her own clothing store.
