Ricardina's story

Ricardina is 42 years old and lives with her husband and two children. For the past 5 years, she has been selling liquor at fairs and village festivals as a way of earning a living and helping her partner with the household expenses. She enjoys this business because aside from selling, she also gets to enjoy the shows which are part of the festivals. As in all celebrations there is never a shortage of people who want to drink, Ricardina offers her liquors at a very good price. The most difficult part of her business is dealing with alcoholics, but experience has taught her to be strong to control such situations. This is her first loan with MFP, and she has shown herself to be very committed with her community banking group. Ricardina will invest the loan in the purchase of more liquor to sell in fairs and festivals.
