Elia Maria's story

Elia Maria is 69 years old and she has much experience in working with loans. She has demonstrated herself to be a capable woman, always having made her payments on time and in form. She has been in business for more than 33 years and she has managed to develop it. She is very thankful for this opportunity which is presented to her. Her business activity is the sale and production of tortillas. She starts her day very early, working from 5 in the morning until 6 in the evening, every day. Her tortillas are very famous and her clients always come to purchase her product. The loan which she requests is to purchase corn, lime, firewood, a grill, plastic bags, and charcoal. Her goal is to expand her store and to make some home improvements.
