Elsa Lilia
Before she had her own business, Elsa was working in a business that made jewelry from stones and crystals. She began as an auxiliary to her boss in this business and learned this activity.

Elsa is married and has two children. She started to work because she needed to support her family's expenses. Unfortunately, two years ago her husband had legal troubles that sent him to prison (where he still is) and because of this Elsa had to support her family expenses by herself. After her husband left, she needed more income and quit her job to start her own business manufacturing and selling custom jewelry. She did this because she could increase her income this way.

Fortunately she has a good time with her business and now needs to invest in raw materials. For this reason she is requesting a loan of US$ 650. She comments that with this loan she could increase the number and variety of products that will help her to increase her sales and her family income.

Anteriormente Elsa trabajaba en un negocio que se dedica a la elaboración de joyas de piedras y cristales, comenzó como ayudante, pues esta persona maneja grandes volúmenes, allí aprendió el oficio. Elsa esta casada y tiene 2 hijos menores de edad; comenzó a trabajar pues necesitaba apoyar con los gastos familiares, pero lamentablemente hace 2 años, su esposo se vio envuelto en un problema legal que lo mantiene en la cárcel; por lo que ella quedo a cargo de la manutención de sus hijos. Esto provoco que buscara independizarse y crear su propio negocio de elaboración de joyería de fantasía, pues así podría generar mayores ingresos. Afortunadamente le ha ido bien y a la fecha necesita hacer inversiones por lo que esta solicitando apoyo por la cantidad de US$ 650 que puede pagar a 6 meses, para comprar materia primar para elaborar sus joyas. Con el préstamo desea incrementar la variedad de sus productos y consecuentemente mejorar sus ventas y su ingreso familiar.
