Elva's story

Elva is 37 years old and married to Sr. Cecilio, who is a police officer. Together they help one another with the household expenses. They have two children, so Elva and her husband work and strive to get ahead.


Elva has a food pantry that she has managed for more than 10 years. She decided to open this business when her husband had to work far away from their community. In addition, she wanted to generate her own income and saw that there was a need in her neighborhood. She decided to take a chance so that she could move forward.


Elva needs a loan in order to buy sugar, noodles, baked goods, and other products that will enable her to continue working and helping her family.
