Mrs Elizabeth and her family started this business facing a lot of difficult situations. Her family did not have enough economic resources when she was a kid, so she had to work selling beverages in order to contribute to her families’ support. However, they were always thinking of ways to get ahead in life with their families and improve their situation every day more.

She finished high school and after graduating she became a salesperson. She wanted to succeed and be able to buy her own land in order to develop independently and have a better life, without difficulties.

She is now requesting a loan from the institution in order to expand her business of multi-vitamin drinks.
