Elfida Paulina's story

Doña Elfida Paulina is 55 years old, married and her husband has been a garbage collector for 15 years. Doña Elfida has been selling basic food products for 18 years, such as beans, sugar, pastas, and corn and now she also sells sweets, sot drinks, juices and also ice cream and chocolate-dipped bananas. Without a doubt her business has grown and improved her income, thereby improving her economic stability. She wants to continue selling because that is her family’s legacy and that is what they live on. She wants her business to be stable so they can survive.

Her dream is to be able to help her children. She is requesting this loan to purchase food products in order to continue growing every day.
