Elenise's story

Elenise, 44, is a charming, enterprising woman who wants to improve herself. She lives in her own house with her partner, her four children, and also one of her grandchildren.

Elenise sells clothing, both first and second quality, in the city market, where she has all the necessary equipment. She has been doing this for a year, and during this time she has managed to win customers who she serves in a friendly way. In this she has the support of her older children, who help her with her work. What she likes about her business, is that it provides her with an income that allows her to pay for her household expenses.

She wishes to expand her business and sell more products, and so increase her income. This would be her fourth loan with MFP. She feels happy and very comfortable with the group she is a member of, as she considers them responsible people.

With the loan she has applied for, she will buy a variety of clothing, as she considers that the more variety she has, the better received her business will be, and the more income she will have.
