Flor Alba's story

Flor is someone who has always considered herself to be very hardworking and so, seeing that her husband's income was not sufficient to cover household costs, she decided to set up her own business and thus contribute financially to pay household costs. So she acquired a business that was available in the central park of her municipality and began working hard to get ahead. Her business is a bar where she also offers her customers games such as billiards and other games of chance. Thanks to her good customer service and good location she can make very good sales in her business and this allows her to have a good income for her household. Since her sales are increasing in her business but she doesn't have enough capital to make it grow, Flor is seeking a loan that would allow her to purchase drinks and other, additional products in order to stock her bar and offer her customers a good variety of items.

In this way she will have the chance to keep generating the income that her household needs to keep having a good quality of life, in addition to being able to continue offering her ten-year-old son access to a good-quality education. Her greatest dream is to keep on in her business since it has allowed to her to make considerable improvements to her life circumstances, and to generate employment in the future for those who are most needy, in order to improve the quality of life of others.
