A loan of $600 helped to buy eggs, basic grains, oils, refreshments, etc.

Elsa Iraheta's story

Elsa, 58, lives in her own house with her three children. She has a store where she sells basic necessities, beans, milk, bread, and other products. She has many years of experience in her business, which has given her the experience in sales that allows her to earn the best profits.

Her store's located in her home. She's very well known among the neighbors in the area. She has acquired a lot of customers because her store is stocked.

She wants to grow her business and make a new investment. She needs capital, though, so she's requesting a loan to buy what she needs for her store: eggs, basic grains, oil, sugar, sweets, refreshments, etc.

She's certain she'll pay off the debt and also trusts she'll give her family a better quality of life.
