Cursina
Cursina is 55 years old. She is single and lives in her daughter's house, located in the central jungle district.

She is a very hardworking woman. For the last 15 years, since her children became independent, Cursina has worked painstakingly in her carpentry workshop. She started out making furniture such as tables, chairs, and dressers. With years of experience, she was able to contract workers to help her to build truck bodies and other bigger pieces of furniture.

"This business is profitable, even more so for furniture and coachwork, which earn a lot," says the proud owner of her accomplishments. Cursina is very happy to work alongside those she does because she believes they help her to accomplish her goals more easily. Her next goal is to expand her business, which she needs more raw materials to do. That is why she is requesting this loan. Cursina will invest this money to purchase wood from a variety of trees that she uses most often in her work: oak, cedar, walnut, and moena.

This is Cursina's second loan from MFP. She pledges to make her repayments punctually. She is very happy to have their support and the opportunity to belong to the tight-knit communal bank "Rosas y Claveles" (Roses and Carnations).
