Beatriz Elena's story

Beatriz Elena has worked for her whole life in the area of tailoring. Thanks to the experience that she acquired, her products are very well-liked for their good quality.
When she was very young, Beatriz Elena began to work with her family in a tailoring workshop, and about 7 years ago she decided to start her own tailoring workshop and focus on third party tailoring services. Since then, this has been her main source of income and with this she helps to provide support for the household costs, where she lives with her husband and 3 children.
Beatriz Elena is very well known in her area for being a kind and hard-working person. All of this has helped her to have customers who are loyal to her products. Beatriz Elena has a big dream that her workshop will grow and expand so that she will be able to create jobs and collaborate with more people to improve their quality of life.
Beatriz Elena currently has an order from a customer of hers that requires that she buy more fabric, thread, and some tools of the trade. However, she does not have enough money to make these purchases. This is why she is hoping that a loan will offer her the opportunity to make the purchase of fabric, thread, needles, and other products to make the order that her customer requested and continue obtaining the necessary income for her home.
Beatriz Elena wants her business to bring in a better income. She wants to offer her children the opportunity to obtain a bachelor's degree that will allow them to have a well-paying job in the future.
