A loan of $1,200 helped to pay for her son's college fees and school materials.


Dora Elsy's story

Dora is employed as a cook in a restaurant and lives with her husband and 16 year old daughter. She taught herself how to cook and has worked in the restaurant for six years. She works every day from 10am to 10pm and up until now she has not had any problems at work.

Dora is applying for a loan to pay for her son's college fees and school materials as he is studying and needs to pay for the second semester of college. This loan will help her a lot because it will give her son the opportunity to keep studying.

Dora's goal is to keep her job and to work harder each day to provide her family with everything they need. In particular she would like to support her son to finish his studies.
