Alba Nelly's story

Alba is a person who characterizes herself as being very charismatic and a hard worker. For some time now, she has worked selling merchandise, something she learned from her sister who is also in this line of work. With the impetus of helping her husband with the household income, Alba, decided to start working and she actually has a good amount of customers who prefer her products because of the good customer attention she provides. Alba also wants to help her community so she is taking a course on infant-toddler and pre-school care. Thanks to her increasing sales, Alba has lots of orders from her customers. However, she doesn’t have enough capital to buy merchandise from her suppliers. This is why she has the hope that a loan will afford her the opportunity to buy personal care products like lotions, creams, shampoo and make-up, among other things, to fill her clients' orders. Alba dreams that her business will continue to provide income in order to help her husband with the household income, and that way, provide a better quality of life for her 4 children. Alba also dreams of having a big store where she could hire many people who are in need of household income.
