Loida Elizabeth
Loida Elizabeth is a hard-working woman who works at her business on a day to day basis in order to give her family a better life. Years ago she started her business buying and selling traditional clothes in her local town market on market days. She also goes to other municipalities to sell on their market days because she is supporting her husband in order to help her family get ahead. She has eight children under her responsibility who need the care and support of their parents.

She spends her free time hand making traditional fabrics to later sell. Thanks be to God everything has worked out fine and she now needs a loan to be able to stock her business with different traditional costumes and obtain a little more profit. In itself she is requesting the loan to buy supplies to make traditional fabrics.
