Elia Noemi's story

Elia lives with her 18 year-old daughter and an eight month-old granddaughter. She has a store, and sells meals. She has had this business for 25 years; she inherited it from her parents. She works every day from Monday to Saturday. The loan will be used to buy basic household products, such as juices, sodas, sugar, and ingredients for making meals. This will allow her to get a better income. Elia's goal is to keep building up her business, and attracting more customers. This will allow her and her family to have a better standard of living.
