Mery
Mery is 42 years old and lives with her three children in her own home. She has had a business for more than five years. She sells a variety of products from a small stall at the local market in her community. This job does not have steady hours becaues she does not have a fixed place from which to sell. Her children help her on Sundays, the days with the greatest amount of customers. She likes this job because she can have her earnings the same day she works, even though many times her job is difficult when it is the rainy season or when she has to carry all her heavy products every day to store them until the following day. Her future plans are to have a store in a commercial zone, and she is working very hard toward this end. This is the second loan she has had with MFP and she has a good impression of group loans because it has been a successful experience for her, in spite of the struggles that exist in a communal bank. She is also thankful for the opportunities she has received and promises once again to be punctual in her payments. The loan she has requested will be used to buy groceries like rice, sugar, and mixed vegetables to increase her working capital.
