Elena's story

Elena, 33, has an 18 year old son. She sells bagged potato chips.

She offers her products to different neighborhood stores and schools where she already has a clientele.

Elena will use this loan to buy supplies such a potatoes and oil that she will use to make the potato chips.

She is going to use the profits to buy supplies and keep improving her business and expand more. In this way she can save and come out ahead.

Elena's wish is to be able to open a store where she can sell her products.
