Elizabet's story

Elizabet is 33 years old and lives with her common-law husband and four children in the municipality of Choloma, Cortes. She is involved in two business activities: she sews clothing and also sells used clothing. She has been doing these things for ten years in order to generate income.

In order to run her business she has taken out several loans, and is currently seeking her fifth loan. She will use the 4,500 lempiras in order to purchase used clothing to sell during the upcoming Christmas season. Her plan is to increase her earnings so that she can improve her standard of living.
