Elsa Del Carmen's story

Elsa, 65, lives in her own house with three nieces and nephews. She runs a bakery from which she earns income to support her family's needs. She learned this trade from her parents; she inherited the business and has owned it for 10 years.

She's requesting a loan to buy flour, sugar, leavening, and other necessary materials. It will benefit Elsa to get the money she needs to buy at a better price and improve production.

Her goal is to strengthen her business to have more financial stability because this will give her better living conditions for her family.
