A loan of $450 helped buy newspapers.


Elizabeth Nilda's story

Elizabeth lives in the Escobar Uria region with her two children. She is a widow. She acts as both father and mother to get her family ahead.

Elizabeth sells newspapers. She has a sales stall in San Antonio Alto. She leaves her house very early in the morning to buy the newspapers. She then goes to her stall where she stays until midday or until she sells all of the papers (although sometimes, when there are not many sales, the possibility exists to return the left over papers). In the afternoons she works in a bookstore bazaar, which is also in the San Antonio Alto region. However, her eldest daughter usually works with her in the bookstore.

Elizabeth is a very responsible person with her family, and she is devoted to her work.
