Doralba's story

Doralba has always been a very hard-working person. This quality has allowed her to overcome great adversities that have presented themselves in her life. Doralba is married and has two children who are 6 and 13 years old. She has always wanted to provide her children with a good quality of life and a good education. As the salary that her husband earned wasn't enough to cover their household expenses, Doralba decided to set up a business which would make her income so that she could contribute financially towards their household and enjoy a better quality of life. She set up a restaurant which she has now been working in for a number of years. She is very well known among her customers owing to the good quality of the food that she sells and the good customer service that she always provides. As she is experiencing a high increase in sales, Doralba is looking for a loan that will allow her to buy supplies for preparing her meals such as vegetables, rice, etc. This will enable her to continue providing her customers with a good service and she will be able to continue increasing her sales and improving her income. This will ensure that the members of her household enjoy a good quality of life and that her children are able to enjoy a good education. Doralba dreams of being able to get her children ahead in life and provide them with the financial help they need to make progress.
