Alva Luz
Alba, age 61, lives in Quevedo, Ecuador. Her siblings have grown financially from the business. This motivated her to be able to set up her business. Also, she did this because she liked selling shoes.

She works selling shoes on Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 in the morning until night time. She does not have any difficulty in her work.

She is a widow, and she has four children. They are all professionals now.

She will use the loan to buy general footwear and a display case.

In the future she wishes to have all of the things she needs for her household. She also wishes to have good health in order to be able to work and not be dependent on anyone for as longs as God allows her.
