A loan of $425 helped to buy merchandise.


Elsa Maria's story

Elsa is a single mother. Her children are independent and help her with some household expenses. She started her own business some time ago. With the help of a loan she managed to set up a grocery store. However, it is difficult when she becomes sick because then she has to close her store. Elsa's plans are to increase her sales by investing in new and varied products. She will use this loan to buy a variety of merchandise including candies, soft drinks, dairy products, washing powder, groceries and basic grains. She is grateful to the financial institution for the support they have provided to her in making progress in her business and changing her standard of living.
