A loan of $1,200 helped to buy beverages, sweets, and canned goods.


Elva Alicia's story

Elva Alicia M. D. A. is 66 years old. She has 6 grown children that all live in their own house. Elva lives with her husband, Don Antonio. She owns a store in the town and department of San Salvador and has several years of experience with this business. Currently, she is interested in investing more in her business in order to offer more products that her clients are demanding as summer nears, such as beverages, sweets, and canned goods. Elva has a great deal of experience with loans and knows how to take advantage of them, as she has always been very forward-thinking. It is for this reason that she hopes to receive this new loan and use it to buy products before summer begins to take advantage of lower prices and thereby increase her profits.
