A loan of $800 helped to buy natural and artificial flowers and materials used in floral arrangements.


Alba Kellyn's story

Alba sells flowers. She lives with her three children and her mother, all of whom are dependent on her. Alba owns the home in which she resides. She sells all types of natural and artificial flowers. Alba has been in business for 10 years and learned this trade from her mother.


She is currently requesting a loan so that she can buy natural and artificial flowers. Alba will also buy materials used in floral arrangements, such as baskets and paper in different colors. This loan will be a great help in managing her business since she expects more demand during the upcoming season.


Her aspiration is to increase the earnings from her business. Not only does she work to maintain her home, but she also expects to improve her current conditions.
