Alice is a married woman, and she has six children. She runs a very well-supplied, small store that sells fresh water. She is a very hard-working and tenacious woman, who is always making efforts to get ahead in life.

Alice told us that she started working in this field more than three years ago, because there was a need for a general store in her neighborhood. Little-by-little her business has been able to grow, thanks to her efforts.

She is requesting a loan to buy more general products such as rice, noodles, flour, sugar, oil, and baked products to sell in her new stall. Thanks to this investment, she will keep on selling high-quality products and increasing her sales and income.
