Elvira Yesenia's story

Elvira is a businesswoman. She lives with her family in her own home and she makes snacks (fries, fried yucca, empanadas, tamales, etc.) that she sells on foot close to where she lives. She has been able to cover her household expenses thanks to her sales. Elvira is asking for a loan to buy the products she uses to make her snacks, such as oil, potatoes, corn for tamales, bananas, and all the ingredients for cooking, as well as a new stove. This will allow her to keep supporting her household and be able to cover any expenses that might arise.
