Mirna Elizabeth
Mirna Elizabeth H. F., 24, lives in San Vicente department with her sister, brother-in-law, and their children, because her parents emigrated to the United States. Despite this, Mirna decided to forge ahead and set up her own business. She sells clothing for men and women in a store that is located in downtown San Vicente, an area that has a lot of foot traffic and, because it is on the town's main street, sales are very good, escpecially on weekends.

This is how Mirna earns her livelihood, working hard to improve her business' condition and increasing her stock. This is the reason why Mirna is requesting funding; she wants to buy a greater variety of colors and sizes of fashionable clothing so that her sales will increase and she will have better economic stability. She wants to continue to make progress, to be self-sufficient; she is always striving to improve and to set new goals for herself.
