Elisa Maria's story

Elisa is a 20 year old young woman full of dreams and a solid destiny. Even though her life has not been like that of a princess, she lets her imagination run away to reach her dreams. She is the single mother of a three year old girl, who is her main treasure and motivation. She has worked hard since she was a girl, due to her difficult family situation. Thanks to this, she learned how to sew by working in the trade for a number of years. She went on her own a year ago and set up a small workshop in her home, where she has a partner. She does all kinds of jobs, but at this time they have one machine and one provider.

She is asking for this loan to buy a motorcycle because they constantly search for customers and make deliveries. They expect work and productivity to increase with the help of this new tool, and for their transportation costs to decrease, which will translate to better earnings and quality of life.
