Elvira's story

Sra. Elvira is 48 years old and lives with her husband Jose and their children in Los Torres, a neighborhood in the town of Choloma. Her five children are ages 24, 22, 16, 15, and 13. The three youngest children are studying. Elvira, her husband, and two of her children financially support the household expenses.

Three years ago, Elvira started her business of making and selling tortillas. She decided to establish a tortilla shop because the area lacked this type of business. Elvira also wanted to have her own business so that she could generate income to sustain her family. She works six hours a day making tortillas. Doña Elvira also sells used clothing as a traveling vendor.

She is requesting a loan of 8000 HNL in order to buy supplies such as flour, salt, soda, and lard. Elvira hopes that her young children will succeed and wants to provide them what they need for their education.
