Alba Luz's story

Doña Alba V. sells groceries out of a small store called "LAS GEMELITAS" that she runs out of her home. Her business has grown considerably and her living conditions have improved.

Doña Alba is married and her husband is a farmer who raises corn and beans. He is also the pastor of the Evangelical church and therefore the family has good Christian values. They have four children who depend on them for their food, clothing, education and health expenses.

She plans to use the loan to buy goods to stock her grocery store.
