A loan of $650 helped to buy vegetables, meat and grains.


Lorena Alba's story

Alba lives in the Las Orquídeas. She is 31 years old. She is single and has four dependent children. Upon separating from her ex-partner, she made the decision to seek work to further her children’s studies. Since no one gave her the opportunity to work in a business, she decided to save up her money to open a fast food business. Her business has been growing little by little to the point where she now has regular customers. Alba works daily from morning until night. With the loan, she will buy vegetables, meat, and grains. Her goal is to continue working in her own business.
