Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth is a young entrepreneur. She recently set up a bookshop, which she began with effort and her own funds, however she needs a loan of one million colones (1,000,000) to buy more materials and items to expand her stock. Through this, she hopes to grow with her business, which she has a good chance of because there are lots of educational institutions nearby which will enable her to boost her profits.
