Elba's story

Elba A. lives in the Tacuba area of Ahuachapan, El Salvador. She lives with her husband and two daughters who are both in primary school. Elba sells clothes and cosmetics as a street vendor—she leaves her house early every day to offer her merchandise door-to-door. Since Elba and her husband only finished primary school, she dreams of giving her daughters a good education. Because she wants to provide her children with a promising future, she works hard every day. Elba is asking for a loan to buy more merchandise so she has more to offer to her customers.
