Diribe's Story

Diribe, a mother of four children, is in a good position to change her life style. She has good rapport with her customers. “The local people like my business...I want to move it forward to earn more income,” she said. Diribe faces a serious financial shortage. “If I get money I can run this business properly."

A World Vision micro loan will help Diribe put the money into expanding her restaurant. In the future, she dreams of having a cafeteria that can help her get more income and create jobs for her community.

The added income will allow her basic living conditions to improve.
