Elena Marisol's story

Elena Marisol G. D. C. lives in the Apopa municipality in the San Salvador department. At her 39 years of age she works in her small business selling candies, fruits and vegetables, soap and other household products. She makes a living in this manner and contributes, along with her husband, to the household expenses as her husband is obligated to travel to the United States periodically to increase their income.

Elena is requesting a loan in order to stock her store with products which will allow her to make the most of her earnings so that she can invest in the development of her two small children especially during the time when her husband is out of the country.
