Can I bubble-up an event from Ajax.response?

I've been struggling with this for a day. I can't figure out how to bubble an event up from the ajax.response() (or ajax.error() handlers coming from the fetch() of my enyo/Source...

I could really use some help on understanding how to bubble-up an event to be handled by a parent kind - I am currently calling mftLbUserLoginModel.fetch(); from a parent's Button ontap event, and the Ajax is working fine, I just can't figure out how to handle UI changes based on success or failure. Here is the enyo/Source and enyo/Model I'm working with:

var kind = require('enyo/kind'),
  EnyoSource = require('enyo/Source'),
  Ajax = require('enyo/Ajax'),
  Model = require('enyo/Model');

  var mftLbApiUrl = '';
  var mftLbLoginEndpoint = 'mftUsers/login';
  var mftGetUserWithIdEndpoint = 'mftUsers/';

var MftLbLoginSource = kind({
  name: 'mftLbLoginSource',
  kind: EnyoSource,
  fetch: function (rec, opts) {
    // implement code to fetch records
    var ajax = new Ajax({
      url: mftLbApiUrl + mftLbLoginEndpoint,
      method: 'POST',
      cacheBust: false,
      postBody: {username: rec.get('username'), password: rec.get('password')}

    ajax.response(this, function (inSender, inResponse) {
      opts.success(inResponse); // call success callback to return data
      // ** How to bubble a loginSuccess event from here **
      // get username from API with get /mftUsers/{id}
    ajax.error(this, function (inError, err) {// WIP: Needs Work...
      mftLbUserModel.set('username', undefined); // TEMP - Looks ugly, shoudln't this send an event to be handled
var mftLbLoginSource = new MftLbLoginSource({name: 'mftLbLoginSource'});

var MftLbUserLoginModel = kind({
  name: "mftUserLoginModel",
  kind: Model,
  source: 'mftLbLoginSource',
  url: mftLbApiUrl + mftLbLoginEndpoint,
  options: {parse: true},
  parse: function (data) {
    data.access_token =; // Loopback access_token is returned as 'id'
    return data;

var mftLbUserLoginModel = new MftLbUserLoginModel({name: "mftLbUserLoginModel"});
-Thanks in advance for any help!
