Carla Elizabeth's story

Carla Elizabeth G. L. is 20 years old and lives in the department of Usulután. She lives with her mother and her aunt who work in the informal sector as traveling sales merchants. Carla owns her own business selling cell phone accessories such as batteries, chargers, covers, cases and more. She also recharges phones with more calling time and sells calling cards. Her business is a year old, but due to the high demand for this technology and all things associated with cell phones her business is very stable. This allows her to contribute to the household and to pay for her personal expenses.

Carla is requesting a loan to invest in her business. She will buy more calling cards and cell phone accessories for different models. Carla is a great example of a hard-working and ambitious young woman who has an enormous desire to get ahead in life.
