Dora Elizabeth's story

Dora did not have the opportunity to go to school. She is married and her spouse works in agriculture. She has 4 children who are now independent.

Dora has a store of staple products. Previously, the business was her mother's but now it is in Dora's care. The opening hours are from 5:00 in the morning to 6:00 in the evening.

Dora will use the loan to purchase corn, eggs, beans, oil, and cleaning products such as brooms and mops to sell in her store.

She expects to get good earnings with her business.
