Maribel's story

Maribel, 43 years of age, lives happily in her own house alongside her 3 children: Lucero (17), Evelyn (14) and Ángel (3). For 2 years this hard-working woman has worked in instant photography. This consists of taking photos of different sizes and developing them right afterwards. Her establishment is located in a popular commercial centre in the city and sometimes her daughters help her, but the biggest part of the business she does alone. Maribel attends the store from Monday to Saturday all day, and is very satisfied because she generates good earnings which allow her to have a good quality of life. She really likes this job because it doesn't require much force, she can interact with her customers and is entertained a lot. As she is a hard-working woman, in the future she has plans to expand her photo shop as now it is actually a little small. This is her second loan with MFP and she is very thankful to all those peoples that have made it possible for her to receive her loan, which willl help her to progress. Maribel plans to invest the money that she is seeking in the purchase of a new photo printer to continue working peacefully.
