A loan of $550 helped to purchase chairs, tables and ingredients for preparing food.


Alba America's story

Alba, 33 years old, lives with her son. She is a determined and responsible woman so that her family doesn’t lack what is necessary for subsistence. Currently she works selling food near her place of residence near an industrial area. For several years she has had a lot of regular customers as she gives a good price to a plate of food. Alba wants to expand her sales stall by buying tables, chairs and more raw materials to vary her menu and to have a bit more coming in economically but she doesn’t have sufficient income for this investment. For this reason she is requesting a loan to buy the above-mentioned items and thus obtain better earnings to give her son everything necessary without any limitations.
