Nancy
Nancy, 21, is single. She’s the eldest daughter and lives with her parents and two sisters. Because she’s the oldest, she feels responsible to help her sisters and be in charge of the house. Because of this, she has two jobs: in the morning she teaches English to children between the ages of 5 and 8 and in the evenings she works in a casino.

Her greatest concerns are the home’s basic comforts. Nancy has, therefore, proposed for herself to install the sink in the kitchen thereby contributing to a home improvement.

She feels very happy with what she is accomplishing because her greatest wish is to finish building the house with all the basic utilities so that her younger sisters and father can have a better quality of life.

This is her first loan with MFP and she knows that the money will be of great use for her to invest in the house so she pledges to repay on time.

She will use the funds to buy tile for the kitchen walls.
