Elena Nancy's story

Elena is 36 years old, a single mother, living in her own home with her three children, 3, 8, and 16 years of age. She has a grocery story located in her home, and she also works in the Manuelita farm as a field hand. Elena’s dream is to have a stand in the Toledo Market, to have a more profitable business and offer her children a better living. Money from the loan will be used to buy a refrigerator.
