Betty
Betty is 53 years old and she is a hardworking woman. She has been married to her husband Wilmer for 8 years. They have 5 children together but her only dependent is Harol, the youngest of her children. She owns her own home and it is located in Santa Ana. She sells food products from a space in her home. This has been her business for 25 years. Unfortunately she doesn't have anyone to help her but this doesn't discourage her, instead she finds the strength to move forward. She is sure that with her family's help and that of her communal bank she will be able to stock her store with more products. Her primary obstacle is an insufficient working capital. What she most enjoys about her work is attending her clients in a cordial manner to ensure their return. The reason for her business' success is her good customer service and her dynamic sales. She says that the weekends are the days that earn the best profits. For this reason, in the future she plans on expanding her business by adding to her inventory greater quantities of merchandise requested by her neighbors. They always support her in her business with words of encouragement. She is a member of the communal bank "Mi Banquito", meaning "My Little Bank". It is her ninth loan with MFP (Kiva Field Partner). She says that since she started out accessing loans she has noticed her progress. She enjoys working with the other members of her communal bank because they are very trustworthy. She is also thankful to all of you. Betty, on receiving your support, says that she will invest the funds she requests in the purchase of merchandise for her store, such as: poultry, potatoes, and other food products.
