Elena's story

Sra. Elena M. operates a business selling natural products: Facial treatments, deodorants, vitamins, toothpaste, soaps, body lotions, etc. Business is steady and she has a comfortable life. She is married and has 4 children, all still living at home. The children are in high school now.
Dona Elena decided to start the business because times were tough and her husband's income didn't stretch to paying all of the family's expenses. The income from the business allows the family to live better than they did before.
However, Dona Elena now lacks the working capital she needs to stock the business and meet the demand for her products. She is applying for this loan to raise the funds she needs to support her growing business.
