Elevit
Elevit is 50 years old. She's been widowed for a year and lives with her two children and her mother. She's been selling beverages (soft drinks and beer) from her home for two years, and the business is going well because she's in a bustling area near a park used by a variety of athletes who always need a cold drink. Elevit likes her work a lot because she meets a lot of people and has interesting, engaging conversations. In addition, she uses her earnings to cover her family's expenses, and she's also saving up so she can have a grocery store in the near future. This is her third loan with MFP, and what she likes about working with her group is the level of trust and community among all the members. She will use the money requested to buy some chairs and tables to place outside her house for customers to use. She will also increase the number of drinks she sells.

Elevit tiene 50 años, es viuda desde hace un año y vive con sus 2 hijos y su madre. Desde hace 2 años se dedica a la venta de bebidas (gaseosas y cerveza) en su casa, negocio en el que le está yendo bien, debido a que se encuentra ubicada en una zona muy transitada y cercana a un parque donde acuden varios deportistas y requieren siempre de sus bebidas heladas. A Elvit le gusta mucho su trabajo porque por medio del mismo conoce a muchas personas con quienes mantiene conversaciones interesantes y entretenidas. Además, con las ganancias que obtiene diariamente consigue solventar los gastos de su hogar, y también está ahorrando para tener una tienda de comestibles en un futuro cercano. Este es su 3er crédito con MFP y lo que le agrada de trabajar con su grupo es hay mucha confianza y unión entre todos. Con el dinero que viene solicitando comprará algunas sillas y mesas para colocar fuera de su casa y sean usadas por sus clientes. También incrementará la cantidad de bebidas que vende.
