A loan of $1,450 helped to buy general food products.


Ablavi's story

Ablavi is married to an agent who works in a company in her town, and is 37 years of age. She has four children, all of whom go to school. The oldest of her children is 14, while the youngest is four years of age.

To help cover the household expenses, Ablavi started selling staple goods (milk, sugar, rice and vegetable oil, among others) in a store in 2003. Her main difficulty is the slump in sales, and she has now asked for a second loan to buy general foodstuffs. In the future she wants to expand her business and, if possible, add another secondary business to ensure the wellbeing of her family.
