View original language description ↓
Maria Elena is an entreprising micro-entrepreneur. She is married and is the mother of 5 children: 3 males who are 21, 19, and 12; and 2 girls who are 17 and 9. She has promoted her business of selling bread for 6 years, with the goal of being able to pay for the education of her children. Her husband is a baker, and she learned this trade from him. Now they make and sell bread. She has the opportunity to open a branch in another colony, which would give her a large point of sale and the opportunity to have sellers.


Currently she requires a credit of $675, which she will pay back in 6 months. She will use the money to fix up her new location. Let's support Elena and her family so they can keep prospering.
