Due to issues of modesty as a married woman, Alizabeth's 20 year old daughter is pictured in the photo. Alizabeth is a 39-year-old mother of 11 children. Three years ago, she opened a photography and event organization business. She speaks about catching that special moment with a simple click of her lens. Alizabeth works with each client to focus the pictures and event album to fit their dreams. Before opening her business, Alizabeth never held down a job.

Alizabeth took this loan to update and purchase photography & video equipment and a rolling cart for equipment transport.

In the future, Alizabeth wants to purchase a DJ system and continue to expand her business so she will actualize the dreams of each bride, family and client.
