Elsa Ermita's story

Elsa Ermita is known as a very responsible and hard-working person who struggles alongside her husband to advance her home and her family. Elsa works as a cosmotologist, cutting hair, tinting, doing permanents and other services in her home and in the homes of her customers. She can count on an acceptable number of clients.

Elsa is requesting a loan to improve her house. She needs to construct a room where she can conduct her cosmotology work. To do that, she needs to purchase cement, bricks, sheet steel, sand, and other construction materials for building walls, a floor, and also to hire skilled persons to do the work. With this loan, Elsa has hopes of improving her business and offering customers a more appropriate place for conducting her beauty parlor services.
