Milka is 41 years old. She is a hardworking and very cheerful woman. She lives with her 3 children who she loves very much, and who are her motivation to keep moving forward. Milka works selling staple goods as well as selling fish, which is quite profitable; for this, she has a small stall in her city’s market. It’s because of this that she gets up very early and goes to the fishermen’s port, where she purchases her product and takes it to her sales stall.

She is very glad for the attention of her customers who visit her daily; she’s known how to earn it. She has been working in this way for more than 12 years, counting on the help of her children. She considers her business to be profitable, since she has a regular customer base that buys her products.

She likes her work because it allows her to have an economic income, which lets her pay for her children’s schooling. She has to work twice as hard, as she can’t rely on the support of a spouse, but she keeps going. Her children are her motivation, and they encourage her to keep making an effort to give them a better quality of life.

She states that she wishes to be able to increase her business capital. This would be loan number 3 with the organization MFP.
