Elena's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to repair a patio and steps in her house.
Elena is 41 years old. She is a widow and lives in her own house along with her two children who are 13 and 17. She fights every day to get ahead. She is dedicated to selling food. She works from 3 in the afternoon until 10 at night selling all types of dishes with chicken and meat. Her 17-year-old daughter helps her with this work. The rainy season is approaching and Elena wants a loan to repair her patio and the steps in her house. Elena dreams that her children become professionals and that they can get work abroad. Elena did not finish school and does not want this to happen to her children.
