Elsy Elizabeth's story

Elsy is grateful for the help provided to her through Padecomsm's loans and their ease of payment, and has decided to request a new loan to buy sweets, drinks, bread, oil, eggs, sugar, salt, tomatoes, onions, chilli peppers, cabbages, etc in order to provide her customers with the best service.

Elsy used her previous loan to stock up her shop, which brought such benefits as new customers, and improved sales and profits. She is still supporting her family, but they now have a better living situation.
