Vaneza's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy chairs and tables for her restaurant.
Vaneza, 23, is a single woman who lives with her 6 siblings whom she cares for in her own home, located in the town of Chupuro. During the school year she cares for her siblings in her house in the city, because her parents live in the countryside where there are no schools. This way her siblings can learn to read and write. Before, she used to rent out space for a beauty shop in her house, which overlooks the main square, but she finished that contract, so now she is planning to open a restaurant where she could sell home-made meals to the townspeople in her neighborhood. She knows that she can make this happen, because she works very hard embroidering aprons. She tells us that she makes an average of 8 embroidered skirts a month, and makes good money for them. "The most difficult part is the art," she says. Over all of this time, she has managed to acquire 3 sewing machines, industrial and simple, and she now has 3 years of experience. She hopes to consolidate the business over time. Now she is saving, and she hopes to quickly reach her goal. This will be her 4th loan with MFP, and she awaits a small loan so that she can reach her goals. In addition, she pledges to comply with the payment terms, as she did with her previous loans. She is grateful to be a part of her communal bank, because all of the members are responsible people who support each other. Once Vaneza receives your support, she will invest the money in the purchase of chairs and tables so that she can open her restaurant.
