Karla Elisa
Karla is a very cheerful, responsible woman. She has a son in her care. For three years she has sold general merchandise. This is now her permanent occupation because she started to work, like all committed mothers, to contribute to household income because she wanted to provide for her son. During the mornings she could do the household chores and then in the afternoon she could sell her various products.

She is asking for this current loan to buy sheets, towels, perfumes and footwear. Her wish is to continue to strengthen so that her children will not lack their daily food.
