Elba's story

Elba is a dynamic, enterprising woman who fights for her ideals. She is 40 years old, and is the mother of three grown children. She sells motorcycle and motorcar (light, 3-wheeled vehicle) parts, working with her husband in his tire repair and spare parts business. She has been a member of the “Las Heroínas” communal bank for two years. She obtained her first loan of 300 soles, and this amount was invested in the opening of her motorcycle and motorcar parts business. With this loan of 2,300 soles, she will purchase a motorcar. Her goal is to increase her repair shop and to purchase another compressor.
