Maria
Maria is 45, and lives in her own home with her husband, Marco (50), and her two children Bárbara (19) and Isaías (7).

Since she was very young she liked to make different types of food and desserts. This has helped her because 2 years go she began a business selling food in a stand in one of the markets in her area. She runs this business along with another woman and she is very happy because she makes good money every day. The products that she sells are muffins, sweets, drinks and other foods. Maria wants to work while she still has the strength. That is why after she finishes at this stand, she moves to another stand in the afternoons where she continues selling food. It’s tiring, but she knows that as long as she can, she will continue so that can give her family a better quality of life.

And as an entrepreneur, in the future she would like to expand the business and set up a restaurant. Her dream is to end up with a chain of restaurants in different areas of the city.

The is her first loan with MFP and she promises to be punctual with her payments because he would like to be able to access more loans in the future. Maria is planning on using the money to buy foodstuffs to supply her businesses and offer a greater variety of dishes.

María, de 45 años, vive en su casa propia al lado de su esposo Marco (50) y sus dos hijos; Bárbara (19) e Isaías (7).
Desde muy joven le gustó preparar distintos tipos de comidas y postres, lo que le sirvió para que desde hace 2 años empezara con el negocio de venta de comida en un puesto ubicado en uno de los mercados de su zona. Esta actividad la realiza con la ayuda de otra señora, y está muy satisfecha porque obtiene buenas ganancias cada día. Los productos que ofrece son queques, dulces, bebidas y otros comestibles. María quiere trabajar mientras tenga fuerzas, es por esta razón que luego de terminar con este trabajo, al caer la tarde, se dirige hacia otro puesto en otro mercado donde sigue vendiendo comida; es cansado, pero sabe que mientras pueda lo hará, ya que quiere ofrecer una mejor calidad de vida a su familia.
Y como es una mujer muy emprendedora, para el futuro tiene pensado ampliar su negocio e instalar un restaurante, pues su sueño es llegar a tener una cadena de restaurantes en diferentes distritos de la ciudad.

Esta es la primera vez que tiene un préstamo con MFP y promete pagar puntualmente cada cuota, ya que quiere seguir accediendo a más prestamos en adelante. María tiene pensado invertir el dinero que solicita en la compra de comestibles para abastecer sus negocios y ofrecer mayor variedad de platillos.
