Elvira
Elvira is a woman who radiates happiness. She is 37 and is married to the father of her 3 children. At the moment they live with her husband's parents and operate their business from that house as well. However, they have already bought land for themselves, on which they plan to build in the future.

Elvira has worked as a secretary in her town's municipal government for 19 years. Along with her husband, however, she also runs a bookstore with internet access booths. Edwin (her husband) runs the business and she helps on the weekends. They've had the bookstore for almost 10 years and the internet access booths for 8 years, and both sides of the business do well. Elvira's husband enjoys working in sales and he is very creative. For this reason he also works as a graphic designer for various stores, using his earnings to expand his and Elvira's business. Elvira supports her husband in all these efforts, with the hope of having their own home soon.

This is Elvira's fifth loan with MFP [the Kiva field partner], and she promises to be responsible with her repayments. She also mentions that she has found it satisfying to work with the other members of her Communal Bank. With the money from the current loan she will buy a glass shop window and replacement parts for computers, in order to increase the income from their business.

Elvira es una mujer muy radiante de alegría, tiene 37 años y está casada con el padre de sus 3 hijos. Por el momento viven y tienen su negocio en la casa de sus suegros, pero ya compraron su propio terreno, el cual irán construyendo más adelante.

Hace 19 años trabaja en la municipalidad de su localidad como secretaria, pero paralelamente y junto a su esposo, tienen una librería y cabinas de Internet, las que atiende Edwin (su esposo) y ella lo apoya los fines de semana. La librería tiene cerca de 10 años y las cabinas de internet 8, en lo cual les va muy bien. Su esposo es un hombre que le gusta las ventas y además es muy creativo, por ello realiza diseños gráficos para diversas tiendas comerciales, y con las ganancias viene ampliando el negocio. Es por ello que Elvira lo apoya en todo, con el fin de tener pronto su casa propia.

Este es su quinto crédito con MFP, donde ratifica su compromiso responsable con el pago de sus cuotas y manifiesta su satisfacción de trabajar con los demás integrantes de su banco comunal. Con el dinero que ahora solicita va a comprar una vitrina y algunos repuestos para computadoras, para que de ese modo genere mayores ganancias en su negocio.
