Elsy’s the name of the one who was interviewed. She’s married to Saul and they have a daughter who is still their responsibility; she’s six-years-old.

She requested the loan to buy ranch-bred chickens and turkeys. She’s been working for thirty-one years and five months and comments that she does well in that with it she and her small family has been getting ahead.
