Alba Sobeyda
View original language description ↓
Hello, how are you? My name is Alba R. and I work selling a variety of products that are commonly consumed every day. I am 36 years old. My business is my only source of income for sustaining my home. Unfortunately, I have difficulties with my daughter because she has an illness that has incapacitated her for life and she is paralyzed. So, because of this illness I spend a lot of money each month. Thank God I have the help of my husband to get ahead, but I need to grow my business. At this time we are selling lottery tickets and that has helped us a lot because the tickets sell a great deal in our country. For this reason I need monetary assistance to get ahead with my business, my home and my family.Translated from Spanish by Hugh Yarbrough, Kiva Volunteer.
