A loan of $500 helped working capital and repair home.


Adela's story

Adela is a 50 year old single mother that lives with her 3 children who are single and work. She has been selling for the last 5 years a variety of regional cusine meals, as well as fruits and candy in a small booth in the front of her home. Adela sells all day and is doing very well. What she likes about her job is to be active and prove that she is useful. Her business is profitable because of her regular customers that have been buying her meals since she started the business.

Adela wants to have a regional cuisine restaurant. This is her 8th loan with MFP and what she likes about the community bank is that there is a commitment in making payments and the union among their members. With the money requested she will buy fruits, candies and the ingredients to prepare the meals. A percentage of the loan will be used to buy wood to repair her home.
