Elba María's story

Elba is a 47 year old woman. She has four children and one lives outside the country. Another daughter is a lawyer. Her husband worked outside the country and when he returned with his earnings, they got the idea to open a pizza parlor and it’s doing well. They’ve had it for about six years and they also rent out rooms, mainly to students, to earn extra income. Now, in order to move the business ahead, along with her two children who study at university, she is requesting a loan to that she can replace the roof in her home, because the current one has deteriorated. She needs to buy zinc metal sheeting, and iron bars to be able to improve the conditions in her home and for the renters. She is very willing to complete her goals because she wants her family to have a dignified home and better living conditions with her husband’s help.
