Elizabeth
Elizabeth, 48, is single and lives in her mother’s house. During the morning she works as a teacher at a national school which is an hour away from home. In the afternoon she makes various teaching aids that are very useful for her students and coworkers. The material she uses most is corrospum (micro-porous plastic-like material of different colors) because it’s very malleable for making shapes and designs.

One of the advantages she has in this business is that most of her coworkers help her with sales offering the items to their students or to people beyond the educational institution. She enjoys her work very much so she is always coloring and cutting the corrospum; only thus can she meet the demand of students in various grades. She has been doing this work for 3 years and hopes to learn more painting techniques; she’d also like to be proficient in oil painting.

This is her 25th loan with MFP and she commits to being very punctual with her repayments. She will use the requested funds to buy corrospum, wool in a variety of colors and paints in general so that she can give better finishings to her teaching aids.

Elizabeth, de 48 años, soltera y vive en casa de su madre. Por las mañanas trabaja de profesora en una escuela nacional, que queda a una hora de su casa y por las tardes elabora diversos trabajos didácticos que son de mucha utilidad para sus alumnos y colegas. El material que más utiliza es el corrospum, por ser muy maleable para hacer formas y diseños. Una de las ventajas que tiene dentro de este negocio es que la mayoría de sus colegas la ayudan con las ventas ofreciendo a sus propios alumnos o personas ajenas al centro educativo. Le gusta mucho el trabajo que realiza, es por ello que nunca deja de dibujar ni cortar el corrospum; solo así abastece las demandas de los alumnos de diversos grados. Lleva trabajando 3 años, por lo que espera en adelante conocer más técnicas de pintura, asícomo desea tener dominio dibujando con el óleo. Es su 25avo crédito con MFP y se compromete en ser puntual en sus cuotas. Con el crédito que solicita, comprará corrospum, lanas de diversos colores y pinturas en general, para que pueda realizar mejor acabado a sus diseños didácticos.
