Elisa
View original language description ↓
Elisa started the business due to financial necessity since she did not have enough money to raise her children. Her husband does not make very much money as a welder because he is not on a fixed income. Elisa wanted her 2 children to continue with their studies, but it was difficult because she did not have enough money to buy neither school supplies, nor uniforms, nor shoes. It was then—10 years ago—that she started selling basic foodstuff such as beans, sugar, rice, bread, and milk. She soon set up her general store, and thanks to this business, her children have been able to study and get ahead in life.


She needs financial support, a loan of $350.00 USD that she will repay in 6 months, so that she can restock her shop by purchasing merchandise. With your help, Elisa will move forward.
