Beatriz Elena's story

Beatriz is an illustrious example of courage. She is a woman who has been struck hard by life experiences that have left her many scars that only time will heal. Despite her adverse situations, her dreams have never faltered and the desire to see her three children grow up has turned into her biggest challenge. After her husband died, Beatriz became the head of household and began working as a domestic employee in a residence. When she realized her income was not enough to cover family expenses she began working in other areas such as selling clothing in her free time. This is how she became an entrepreneur.

Now, she has been in business for five years and dreams of setting up her own clothing shop. She is currently requesting a loan to buy merchandise in an effort to improve her family's quality of life.
