Elva Nury's story

Elva is a very hard-working woman who has had to overcome major adversity in her life. However, she has always had the strength to continue moving ahead, together with her husband and two children aged 10 and 17.

Approximately 20 years ago, with the intent of contributing financially to her household, she decided to learn hair-dressing, and since then she has been performing this activity. The main difficulty that Elva faces is lack of capital to invest in her business, but in spite of this she has many good customers. Her household expenses are increasing due to her children's education, which is why she is looking for a loan that will allow her to purchase a hair washing basin for her hair salon, and in this way be able to provide her customers with better service.

Elva hopes that with better service she will increase her number of customers and also increase her sales, in a way that her family will be able to enjoy better economic opportunities and a better quality of life.

Elva dreams of having a large hair salon and a store selling hair-dressing items where she can generate employment for those who need it most.
