A loan of $800 helped to buy sugar, oil, rice, sausages, eggs, and bathroom tissue.


Alba Isabel's story

Alba lives in Berlin in the department [province] of Usulután where she has a business selling food items. She lives in her own house with her husband and two children, ages 5 and 10. She began the business on her own about three years ago, offering products for home use. She does not have a fixed schedule for running the store since it is located in her residence.

She is requesting a loan for the purchase of merchandise like sugar, oil, rice, sausages, eggs, and bathroom tissue. The loan will help her supply the business and stabilize her inventory. Her aspirations include having a spacious business full of merchandise with many clients and an improved economic solvency which will permit her to assist her children with their needs, above all their education.
