Elba Esperanza
Elba is 40 years old and lives in Quevedo, Ecuador. She had a good job but because of her father's health situation, she had to leave her job to take care of him. Finding herself in a bad economic situation, she decided to start selling leather purses. She does this on her own and it leaves time for her to care for her father. She is a single mother with one six-month old son. In the future, she longs for her father to still be alive and to improve her business. She will buy patterns, leather, and thread with this loan.
