Elizabeth
Sra. Elizabeth, 33, and her husband, Sr. Elvis, have been married for 18 years. They have four children and work hard to raise and support them.
Sra. Elizabeth has operated a grocery and meat sales business for twelve years. Her store is in well-trafficked part of town. She says that she started with a corner shop in a "quinta" [normally a country house, but probably something else in this context] and built it over many years. Her husband helped her start the business. She gets up early to buy the best products from the Mercado Municipal because she wants her customers to have the best.
Sra. Elizabeth is applying for a loan that she will use to stock her business with meat, soft drinks and other merchandise that she will then resell.
