Alba Ruth's story

Alba, 44, is a single mother of two children. She worked as a store manager for more than five years but decided to retire and use her savings to start her own business plan. She opened a store that sells sewing supplies like buttons, ribbons, thread and fringe, among others. She’s supported her family this way providing them with schooling and housing. She currently dreams with continuing to grow in the local marketplace which is why she’s asking for a loan to buy two display cases and stock merchandise to increase her level of sales.
