A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a refrigerator.


Elsa's story

Elsa is 40 years old and is not married. However, she is a single mother of two children who are 12 and 7 years old and who both go to school. Elsa makes a living preparing and selling food. She can be found in one of the most trafficked markets in her area. This is her first loan within the institution. Elsa will use the loan to buy a refrigerator and supply for her business. She is requesting the loan because she does not have enough money to get what she needs. Elsa has some challenges in her business like competition. She wants to stand out from the rest of the competition by offering good customer service and in that way increase her sales and make a better income. She is happy and grateful for the opportunity she has been given.
