Elizabeth
Elizabeth is 28 years old and lives with her partner, father, and two children in her own home. Ever since starting her own family she had been only in the farming of coffee and bananas on the farms of her in-laws, but in the last year she has also started to sell vegetables. For that, every Friday before dawn she travels to the mountain area of her city to buy vegetables such as: lettuce, spinach, carrots, onions, etc., and on Saturday she sells them in her area. This business is very profitable because she is the only person selling these products in her area. Elizabeth is very happy with her business, and even though she has to travel for four hours she doesn’t mind as it is profitable and, thanks to these profits, her children do not suffer from a lack of necessities.


She is very grateful that with her first loan from MFP she was able to use the capital for her vegetable business, for which she committed and fulfilled to her fellow members of the communal bank to be punctual in the payments. The loan that she asks for now will be invested in the purchase of chemical fertilizers and to increase the amount of vegetables that she sells.

Desde que se formó su propia familia se ha dedicado únicamente al cultivo de café y plátanos en sus chacras de sus suegros, pero hace un año ha empezado a vender verduras. Para ello, todos los viernes por la madruga viaja la zona sierra de su ciudad para comprar verduras como: lechugas, espinacas, zanahorias, cebollas etc., y el sábado realiza la comercialización en su localidad, y esta actividad le es muy rentable porque por ser la única que vende estos productos en su zona. Elizabeth está muy contenta con su negocio, así tenga que viajar durante 4 horas siente no importarle mientras le sea muy rentable, ya que gracias a estas ganancias sus hijos no sufren de necesidades económicas.

Ella está muy agradecida, ya que con su primer préstamo con MFP, obtuvo capital para su negocio de verduras, por ello se compromete e inculca a sus compañeros de banco comunal ser muy puntuales en los pagos. El dinero que ahora solicita lo va a invertir en la compra de fertilizantes químicos y para el incremento de las verduras que vende.
