Elsa Diner's story

Elsa is a 36 year old single mother. She has a daughter that depends on her and she owns her own home which is located in a community in the south of Honduras. For the last 16 years she has worked on her business selling crafts.

Since she was very young she has worked creating clay ornaments. She sells them to the tourists who pass through the area and to the merchants who sell these items. She also sells clothing during the times when she is not making the ornaments to make use of her time and to obtain better earnings. Elsa is seeking this loan to purchase skirts, dresses, pants, blouses and clay so she can take advantage of the Christmas season. She is very content working with Prisma. This is her fourth loan and her goal is to continue striving to get ahead. Elsa's dream is to improve her business and her quality of life.
