Sara Elizabeth's story

Sara is a very charismatic woman who stands out for being very hardworking, happy and responsible; what’s most important is that she’s an enterprising merchant. She lives with her three children in the city of Ibarra.

Sara works alone selling underwear for children and adults. She’s been in business 17 years in a stand in the market and she’s always needed to increase sales to earn higher income and improve her quality of life. She’s currently taking out a Fodemi loan to buy socks for children and adults and underwear for men and women. Sara dreams with having her own, larger locale in order to have more variety of products and to earn higher income to be able to improve her children’s quality of life.
