A loan of $850 helped to buy school supplies.


Alba Lucía's story

It’s clear to Alba, 30, that her priority is her family’s well-being and that to attain it any sacrifice is small. Because of this, she decided five years ago to leave the firm she worked for to care for her children who are 15 and 5 years of age. At the same time, she decided to open a small store at home to cover household expenses and guarantee better living conditions for her children. Today, she’s happy with her business and feels that it was the best decision because her work allows her to care for her children.

Her greatest dream is to see her business grow to become a self-service market. She’s currently asking for a loan to buy school supplies to increase her sales level and take advantage of the back-to-school season. She hopes to continue growing as a micro businesswoman and to improve her family’s quality of life.
