Elvi's story

Elvi is 37 years old and she lives with her husband and children. For a year she has provided meals from her home. At the moment she prepares lunches, and this provides additional household income. In this way she can overcome a difficult health situation from which she is currently recuperating. She also offers various services such as washing clothing for her neighbors. In the future Elvi would like to return to a profession that was previously very profitable, which is raising guinea pigs, but she is waiting to fully recover from her gallstone surgery so that she will have full strength. This is the second time she has asked for a loan from MFP, demonstrating her responsibility in her payments. She is asking for this loan as capital to continue providing meals for her customers, buying consumables and ingredients to prepare her dishes.
