Carmen's story

Carmen is 58 years old and a cheerful, friendly woman who sells drinks. She lives alone and is separated from her common law husband. Carmen has been in this business for the past six years because it provides a good income to support herself and remain independent. She begins work in the early morning hours when she opens her establishment to begin selling sodas, beer, and other beverages to her frequent customers. Carmen believes her business is very profitable, so she wants to expand it by buying more beverages at wholesale. This will enable her to keep up with the high demand for the upcoming summer season.

This is her fifth loan with MFP. Carmen has always demonstrated punctuality and responsibility in all of her payments. With the proceeds of her loan, she will purchase crates of beer and sodas in hopes of selling them successfully.
