Carola
Carola, who is 45, is a simple woman. She lives with her husband and their three children, whom she raises in the house they own. Sixteen years ago, she opened a grocery shop in her house and has been tending to it since, with the help of her children, who attend customers when she needs to buy supplies or has business in town. Carola's shop is open every day, including Sundays. In the morning, she sells mostly bread or breakfast fare, which is very good for business. This encourages her to think brightly of the future, and her wish is to keep improving her business. It is the only shop she owns, but she has taken to selling food and all manner of beverages in the cemetery for All Saints', when people visit the graves of their loved ones. This is why she asks for this loan, so as not to lose such a good opportunity for business. It is her third loan with field partner MFP, and she hopes this small sum will help her reach her goal and improve her business. She promises to be punctual with her repayments, because she is very happy being a part of her communal bank. Carola will use the loan to buy all manner of drinks as well as the necessary ingredients to make the food she sells.
