Josefina
Josefina, 38, lives in a house she owns with her husband and their 2 children, 16 and 18, respectively. She operates a business processing potatoes, the main crop in the region. She parbroils the potatoes, peels them and dries them in the sun. Once they're dried, they can be used to make a range of traditional dishes. She generally works alone but, on occasion, when her children are free from their studies, they help her. She sells what she makes to the principle grocers in her neighborhood and, so far, the business, along with her husband's work, has allowed her to keep up with family expenses. In the near future, Josefina would like to have a grocery business. This is her first MFP loan. She's very happy to be part of her commity bank and has committed to repaying her loan on time. The money that she's requesting will be used to improve the infrastructure of her house so that she can create a storage space for her sacks of processed potatoes.
