Liz's story

Liz is 32 years old and a hard-working woman who lives with her two children and her husband in her own house. For 6 years now she has had her own store, selling products of primary necessity. It was advantageous to install her business in her house. Her earnings are necessary for household expenses. The money her husband earns in public transport is not sufficient because he has just acquired an auto, thanks to a loan which he solicited.

For Liz, her work has many advantages, since she can dedicate herself to caring for her baby and her son who is still in school. The most important thing is to offer them a good education and preparation. For that reason, she feels very content with what she has, and hopes to gain more stability and continue improving little by little.

For the future, she wants to expand her store in order to offer articles for the home and supply the demands of her customers who live in the zone. This is her 18th loan with MFP, and she is considered a leader within her communal bank, because she has demonstrated responsibility in her work.

Liz will invest this loan in buying more products to expand her selection, including the new space where she will sell household articles, and in space for the customers, since it's Christmas season and they are requesting many gifts.
