Alba Marina's story

Alba Marina is 56 years old and runs a stationery store. She has been a client of Fundación León 2000 for a long time and she feels very happy because the loans have been a great help to her. She started out in this business because she needed to cover her household expenses as she didn't have a stable job. Through this business, she has been able to support her family.

Alba Marina will use this loan to buy pencils, paper, card, colored pencils, erasers, rulers and composition books.
