Erika's story

Erika is 22 years old. She lives with her mother and siblings in a house belonging to a family member. For four years, Erika has been selling essentials to her acquaintances. She also prepares lunches that she delivers to customers. Her mother is her main partner in this business. She works every day, dividing her hours between her studies and her work. In this way, her business is prospering and successful. She also makes regular profits that allow her to support herself financially. In the future, she would like to set up a grocery store and she would also like to attract more new customers which will allow her to increase her profits. This is Erika's second loan with MFP. She feels secure to know that she has financial support and has always shown herself to be responsible in making her repayments. She likes being a part of her community bank because all the members are responsible people who are very supportive of each other. She is grateful to the people who will help fund her loan since it will be very useful to her in making progress in her business. Erika plans to invest her loan money in buying more merchandise (groceries) to continue making her meals. In this way, she hopes to continue making progress.
