Bettsy
Bettsy is a happy mother who is 23 years of age. She and her partner live at home with her mother.


Bettsy previously helped her parents with their coffee and banana crops. Now that she has her own family, she buys and sells bananas along with her husband. Twice a week, they leave early to buy fruit directly from the banana farms since they are located a considerable distance from where they live. They are able to obtain their products at a low price, which makes them more profitable when they take them into the regional capital where they can generate better revenues. In the future, Bettsy and her husband want to buy their own land so that they can build a house and improve their quality of life.


This is her second loan with MFP. Bettsy is very grateful for her previous loan, since it enabled her to start her business. The money from this loan will be used to increase her capital.

Bettsy es una jovial madre de 23 años, vive con su pareja en la casa de su madre.
Anteriormente apoyaba a sus padres con sus cultivos de café y plátanos, pero desde que formó su propia familia, se dedica a la compra y venta de plátanos juntamente con su esposo. Dos veces por semana madrugan para comprar sus plátanos en chacras que están bien alejadas, pues ahí los encuentran a un precio bajo y así les resulta más rentable porque al llegar al pueblo los venden a un menor precio y también los llevan a la capital de su región donde obtienen mejores ganancias.
Para el futuro, desean compra su propio terreno, donde puedan construir su casa y mejorar su calidad de vida.

Este es su segundo crédito con MFP, Bettsy se siente muy agradecida, ya que su préstamo anterior le permitió iniciar su negocio y con éste incrementará su capital.
