Elfrida Cristina
Elfrida began her business with the help of her husband who is a fisherman. LIttle by little, they were able to buy merchandise and acquired a glass cabinet for the sales of daily necessities and groceries.

Her children help her in the store and she works until 9:00 p.m. One of her difficulties in her work is when she gets sick, since she likes to wait on her customers and when she's sick she gets impatient to return to work.

Elfrida is married and her husband works as a fisherman, and she has two daughters, who are both married but still live at home.

With the loan, she will buy rice, sugar, and snacks to increase the variety of groceries she sells to her customers. One of her goals is to be able to grow her store and provide other services.
