Patricia's story

Patricia, 47, lives with her husband and their two children who help out with her business. They happily live together in their own home. Three years ago Patricia felt it would be profitable to start selling prepared meals. She is a native of the Peruvian jungle region and known for preparing the tasty dishes of that region. She works based on prior orders because she doesn't have space to serve customers. She prepares food for those who request it and they pay according to their weekly consumption. Patricia is happy because her work makes her happy. She takes care of her customers in the morning and in the afternoons she shops in preparation for the next day. For the future, she would like to improve her business by having a space to set up her restaurant. She is a long-standing client of MFP. However, this is her first individual loan; before, she was part of a communal bank and known for being very responsible with respect to repayments. With the funds requested she will buy larger amounts of ingredients to prepare her delicious dishes in order to meet her goals little by little.
