Paquita
Paquita is 59 years old and is the mother of six children who are now independent and have their own families. She currently lives with her husband who supports her in everything. They own the home they live in. For 20 years, Paquita has provided laundry services from her home. Thanks to this work she was able to pay for the school expenses of her children who are very proud to have such a hardworking mother. Paquita not only washes clothing for the general public but also for some boarders who trust in her good work. This is Paquita's second loan with MFP. The loan she is requesting will be used to purchase a washing machine. She has always washed by hand but with the passing of time she does not have the same strength and speed.
