Sabina is 43 years old. She lives with her three children in her own house. For more than six months she has been selling food, in particular, breakfasts, as an ambulatory vendor. Her sales spot is in front of a private university that is near her house. Sometimes her daughter helps her tend her business, waiting on customers in the mornings. Her best sales are from April to December, when classes are in session. Nevertheless, when the vacation period comes, she finds it advantageous to work at another business; in this way she doesn't stop earning income. So she knits articles of clothing to sell later.

Sabina considers any business that she proposes to be very important, but now she wants to intensify and increase her food business. This is her fourth loan with MFP. She is very happy to know that she has financial support, since she has always shown that she is responsible in her payments.

She is thankful to the people who will be grantors of the loan that she is seeking, since it will be very useful in the progress of her business.
