Elia
Elia, 38 years old, lives with her three children in her own house. For over 20 years she has been farming and working with livestock. However, this was not enough for her. Ten years ago she opted to have an additional business selling firewood. She does this in the space behind her her house.

To do this she has an electric saw so that she is able to cut the wood logs that she buys. She then sells them to her neighbors or to customers who request them. That is how she earns a living, which allows her to have income every week. With this income she is able to cover the family necessities. She is also able to invest in her business activities mentioned above like farming and livestock.

Now she wishes to have more firewood to sell. That is why she is asking for your help to be able to continue working. This will be her third loan with MFP. This will encourage her to work more in her sales, and it will give her the security of financial support. She pledges to make her payments on time. She will use the requested loan to buy more wood logs.

Elia tiene 38 años, vive con sus 3 hijos en su casa propia. Hace más de 20 años se dedica a agricultura y ganadería, sin embargo no le era suficiente, por ello optó hace 10 años tener un negocio adicional, que es la venta de leña, actividad que lo realiza dentro de los espacios de su casa. Para ello cuenta con una sierra eléctrica, para que pueda cortar los troncos de madera que compra y que luego son vendidos a sus vecinos o clientes que le solicitan. Es así como se gana la vida, permitiéndole tener los ingresos cada semana y con ello puede cubrir las necesidades de su familia; además puede invertir en las anteriores actividades, como la agricultura y ganadería, pero por el momento desea incrementar de más leña para vender, por ello pide de su ayuda para que pueda continuar con su trabajo. Este será su crédito número 3 con MFP, eso la motivará a esforzarse más en sus ventas y tener seguridad el tener un respaldo financiero, por ello se compromete a ser puntual en sus pagos. Con el crédito solicitado, invertirá en la compra de más troncos de madera.
