Elva's story

Elva is 30 years old and lives together with Rubén who is 33 years old. They live in their own house together with their 3 dear children and want to give them a better future. Elva’s store is the first to open in the city of Quimbiri; at 6:00AM in the morning her doors are ready to receive the shoppers who know the variety of merchandise that she has in her store and don’t hesitate to buy it, having the security of knowing they are going to find the things they need. What she likes best about her work is talking with her customers. She has been in this business for one year and she thinks that the most difficult part is being inside the store all day without being able to leave. She yearns to expand her business over time, and give her clients a better service. This will be her 9th loan with MFP, and she is asking for a small loan in order to be able to do her work. Further, she likes being a part of the communal bank because everyone is trustworthy and cooperative. With the 3000 soles, she will buy supplies for the store such as rice, cookies, soft drinks, canned foods and other items.
