Alba Limbania's story

Alba, 40, is a single mother of three underage children. Her spouse abandoned her, so she took full responsibility of the family’s well-being. She is currently living with her mother, who helps her to take care of the children while she makes a living. She started her own business six months ago, which is located in the market square of her village. Alba sells accessories for cell phones, snacks and beverages every day, from 7 am to 5 pm.

Her biggest dream is to make sure her children can go to the university; she wants them to have better job opportunities.

Motivated by her dream, Alba is requesting a loan to buy a refrigerator and supplies for her store, with the intention of increasing her sales and improve her income. This will result in a more stable economic situation for her.
