Elmis's story

Elmis is 43 years old. She is a determined woman who wants to get ahead with her four children, with the goal of giving them better opportunities in life. Starting when she was young, she learned the profession of tailoring, and she has dedicated herself to this activity as a source of employment to support her household.

She reports that things have not been easy, and when work is scarce she has to resort to looking for new sources of income. Thus, she occasionally does domestic work in her neighbors' house.

Currently, she is requesting a loan with the goal of investing in supplies such as fabrics, buttons and thread, in order to resume her work and dedicate herself to tailoring directly for customers. This will permit her to generate a steady stream of income to improve her family's quality of life.
