A loan of $2,325 helped to improve her store and generate an income to look after her child.

Alvina's story

Alvina, 24, is a single mother of one four-year-old child.

She lives with her mother, who takes care of her son while she works. She started her business four years ago and she sells natural medicines. She has a store where she displays these medicines. Her products are in high demand so she has been very successful.

She thinks that her business is a blessing, because up until now she has not had any difficulties with it. The products sell well and the store is well-known. She hopes that her business will continue to generate a good income for her.

She would like to refurbish the store because the paint on the walls is a bit worn out and is showing signs of damp. This doesn't reflect the healthy image that her sales give her.

For this reason, she is asking for a loan to refurbish her store and generate more income for the future of her young child.
