Elvira
View original language description ↓
Elvira works to make money to pay for the studies of her three young children. Every day she leaves her house to sell tender corn. All this began because in the jobs that she had, Elvira didn’t receive the money that she needed to help her husband with the expenses. It was because of this that she began to look for a better way of making the money she needed. Furthermore, she wanted to be her own boss. Nowadays she has various clients that look for her to buy the corn, and even cosmetics that she sells. However, these days she wants to add the sale of steamed tacos and sufficient material to be able to provide the tacos. With your support she can further her family.

Elvira trabaja para poder sacar dinero para poder pagar los estudios de sus tres pequeños. Todos los días sale de su casa a vender elotes en un carretón. Todo comenzó porque en los trabajos que estuvo Elvira no recibía el dinero que necesitaba para poder ayudarle a su esposo con los gastos. Fue por eso que comenzó a buscar la mejor manera de obtener el dinero que necesitaba. Además de que le gusta ser su propia dueña. Actualmente ya tiene varios clientes que la buscan para comprarle elotes, además de cosméticos que vende.



Sin embargo actualmente quiere agregar la venta de tacos al vapor para poder obtener mayores ganancias. Es por eso que está solicitando un crédito de US $475 que está dispuesta a pagarlos en un plazo de 3 meses y con este dinero Elvira podrá comprar una vaporera y material suficiente para poder elaborar los tacos. Con tu ayuda podrá sacar adelante a su familia.
