Elsa Dora
View original language description ↓
Elsa Dora is a lady with lots of energy for her daily work, she is 54 years old and for the last 30 years she has been taking care of her own business, a store, set up at her home so she can support her children. Years have gone by and today she is living with two of her younger children who are still in school, and they are the reason for her effort. Elsa Dora started this business years ago traveling all over the city on a tricycle. Now she is happy because, for several years, she has had no need to leave her house and daily the nice customer service allows her to receive the economical income she needs to maintain her home. For that reason she requests a loan of 1000 soles ($375) to be invested in the purchase of merchandise, especially candy and sweets, for her store. Please support Elsa Dora to continue with her efforts for a noble cause: her children.

Elsa Dora es una mujer de mucha energía para trabajar diariamente, tiene 54 años de vida intensa, se dedica desde hace 30 años a su propio negocio, una tienda, que instaló en su casa para que ella pueda sostener a sus hijos. Los años han transcurrido y ella hoy está viviendo con dos de sus hijos menores que aún están estudiando, ellos son la razón actual de su esfuerzo. Elsa Dora se inicia en este negocio años atrás de manera ambulante, con un triciclo recorría todas las calles de la ciudad. Ahora está contenta porque desde hace varios años ella ya no tiene que salir de casa y cada día la esmerada atención que ofrece a sus clientes le permite los ingresos económicos que necesita para ser parte del sostenimiento de su hogar. Por ello que solicita un préstamo de 1000 soles que serán invertidos en la compra de mercadería para su tienda especialmente dulces y golosinas. Apoya a Elsa Dora a continuar adelante con sus esfuerzos por una noble causa: sus hijos.
