Elvira
Elvira, 42, is a very cheerful, hard working woman. She lives in her own house with her husband, Cesar, 49, and their three beloved children for whom she wants to proviD. a better future.

Elvira spends her days weaving chullos (woven caps), scarves and gloves on her loom. She enjoys weaving very much and she is quite skilled at it. She sells her woven goods in a small stand in an arts and crafts center in San Pedro D. Cajas where they are purchased quite quickly by her customers.

What she likes best about weaving is that she has a lot of fun doing it and this state of mind is reflected in the details each piece has. She has been doing this work for 32 years and considers the most difficult part having to transport her woven goods to her sales stand because they weigh quite a lot.

In the future she wants to set up her city’s largest artisanal woven goods store where she can sell her wares more comfortably.

This is her 8th loan with MFP and she has discovered the value of team work over this period of time. She is sure to pay all her payments on time so as not to cause any problems for her communal bank where she is very well liked because of the joy she brings.

She will use the requested 1000 new soles to buy more wool to increase the amount of items she makes.
