Martha, is 34, and a good, hard-working woman. She is married to Rony, 42, and they have three children: Daniel is 15, Sarai is 11, and Isaac is 7. She has her own home where she lives with her family. She works hard every day as she wishes to offer them a better quality of life.

Every day Martha heads very early to the nearest city market. There she makes the purchases to do her work in the evenings. In the late afternoon, she goes out to the porch of her house, where she places the tables, chairs, and other materials to be able to do her work.

All the neighbors on her block know her because of her tasty cooking and the excellent way she serves people. This makes them always come back to eat the delicious food dishes that she sells.

She has been doing this work for two years, and learned to do it on her own, as this way she earns more. She really likes her work. She has the time, and in some situations the freedom to manage it. In addition, she has many customers who buy from her, and this enables her to have good earnings.

As every enterprising woman does, she has a great dream. Someday she wants to have a restaurant where she can work every day, and sell all day, and this way improve her income each day.

This will be her third loan with MFP, so she is hoping for your help in order to continue toward her objectives. Moreover, she once more promises to make her installment payments, as with the previous loan she had. As well, she is very happy to belong to the communal bank, as everyone is responsible and very supportive.

With the amount of 1,500 soles applied for, she will buy non-perishable ingredients and supplies in order to continue her work, as she wishes to offer a greater variety of food dishes, and this way have better sales.
