Alma Nuvia's story

Alma Nuvia is 53 years old and has 4 children, all of whom are grown and independent. In her home, she has a small general store where she sells firewood, basic grains, snacks and cleaning products. She has operated this business for 7 years already; she started it since she did not have an income to maintain her household, and she wanted to provide support to her children. She is requesting this loan with the aim of buying a variety of products, since she would like to begin to sell more in order to earn more. In addition, she says that every day the products are getting more expensive. This has become a challenge for her, since the economic situation in the country is becoming more and more difficult.
