Josefa Elizabeth's story

Josefa manages a shop and café. She is 35 years old and lives with her husband and son in Santa Elena in the department of Usulután. They work for the well-being of their only son and in order to meet the most important needs of the household.

They began this business together, mutually supporting one another. Their schedule is from 8:00 in the morning until 9:00 at night so that they can give the business greater stability and give adequate care to customers.

She is applying for a loan which she hopes will help the business to excel by carrying out the purchase of merchandise that will build up its inventory so that they have on hand the foods needed to prepare different dishes for customers. Her plan is to enlarge the business, serve more customers, and improve the family’s income in order to have better economic solvency.
