A loan of $650 helped to buy cosmetics, perfume and creams.


Elvia Idaluz's story

Elvia is a 54-year-old woman who has a great desire to boost her business selling Esika products (catalog cosmetics and clothing) over the next few years. Elvia's business story started when she separated from her husband and realized that she had to work to support her children. She works alone and her work hours depend on her customers' needs. The difficulty she faces is the lack of safety in the streets when she goes out delivering her products. Elvia is not married and her children are adults. Her biggest dream is to finish building her home. She will live in half of the house and rent out the other half. She would like this loan to buy cosmetics, perfume and creams.
