Dora Elvia's story

Dora is a 46 years old woman with the spirit of an entrepreneur and a fighter. All her life she has worked to take care of her home and ensure the well-being her three children. Three months ago she started a vegetable stand in order to generate more income for her household as her economic condition is currently poor and uncertain due to the fact that her spouse is unemployed at present.

Her primary goal is to stock the vegetable stand and expand the range of products and services she provides for the standard family basket of goods in order to offer her customers better quality and service. This way she will generate a higher volume of sales. For this reason she is requesting a loan which she will use to purchase vegetables, soft drinks, and pastries. She hopes her business will allow her to improve the quality of life in her home, stabilize the financial crisis her family currently faces, and guarantee her youngest child access to higher education.
