A loan of $625 helped to buy decorative items at wholesale.

Elizabeth Maria's story

Elizabeth and her husband manage to support their family by working together selling decorative items in small quantities. They pack these items manually and sell these in stores and other small commercial establishments. Their business idea was born when they observed a need in the market and knew that they had experience and competence in this area.

In addition to her work packing these goods, which she does alongside her husband, Elizabeth is a dressmaker and makes additional income that helps very much to improve the well-being of their household. The couple's goal is to help their 16-year-old son to become a successful professional, which is the source of their eagerness to grow their income and support his well-being in the best way that they are able.

Elizabeth is currently applying for a loan which she will use to buy decorative items at wholesale prices. They will resell these in small quantities to be used daily by families. What will make them successful is their experience, their capacity for hard work, their discipline and their common goal that the family is working toward as a team.
