Elsa Gioconda
Elsa Gioconda R. Pérez is a 55 year old woman. She is married and she has 4 children, who live on their own. They are grateful to Elsa and her husband due to the efforts they made for sustenance and education. Elsa began her business when a very difficult situation forced her to leave her fixed job.

From a very young age, Elsa was a primary school teacher, but using the chalk disagreed with her throat, and the chalk and the effort that she made for her students caused nodes of inflammation. This was the reason why her bosses decided to lay her off, but Elsa was not vanquished and with her small severance she started a small grocery store. This is what has been a source of income for her and her family since them. Because her husband was an electrical technician and works without a fixed location, they don’t earn much. Señora Elsa wants this loan to stock her business and in this manner gather together a bigger portion of income.

Elsa inicio su negocio cuando una situación muy difícil le forzó a dejar su trabajo fijo. desde muy joven Elsa era profesora de la escuela primaria, pero el uso de las tizas descuido su garganta haciendo que le brotaran nódulos de inflamación a causa de la tiza y el esfuerzo que hacia para hablarle a sus alumnos, esta fue la causa por la que sus empleadores decidieron despedirla, pero Elsa no se dio por vencida y con su insignificante indemnización estableció una pequeña pulpería. la cual desde entonces ha sido su fuente de ingresos tanto para ella como para su familia. por lo que su esposo es simplemente un técnico de electricidad y trabaja de manera ambulante y sus ganancias no son muchas, la señora Elsa desea este préstamo para surtir su negocio y de esa forma recopilar un mayor porcentaje de ingresos.
