Annaliza Albano lives with her husband and their one son in Aurora, Philippines. Annaliza managed a convenience store in their village as the main source of income for her family. She woke up early and worked hard, but her family faced hardship due to the small selection in the store. Everything began to change when she learned about Opportunity International and received a loan for her business. Annaliza used her loan to increase her selection to better serve her clients. She hopes her business will begin to grow and she will be able to send her children to school and prepare for a better life.
