Elena Áída
View original language description ↓
Elena is young and very enterprising and enthusiastic. She is the next-to-last of six children and her desire desire has always been to become an excellent nurse. However, because of the little money that her parents earned, she has, since she was young, felt obligated to work and abandon her dreams.



Her older sisters taught her to embroider fine works in many styles and to use many colors to increase their value.



Embroidery became a very good option that helped her gain her own income and cover the expenses of her education, and now she again yearns to pursue her dream which has become more feasible.



Day after day Elena diligently embroiders beautifully and responds to the requests of her dear mother. She is very happy and satisfied with her compensation with which she can help raise the quality of life of her beloved family. Now she asks for a loan to invest it in the purchase of more work materials.



Support this talented young woman so that she can succeed in becoming an excellent nurse.
