A loan of $1,000 helped working capital.


Olga's story

Olga is 51 years old and lives in her relatives’ house, with her two sons who are 26 and 24 years old. She has been selling newspapers for the last 25 years in a booth that is located downtown. Her main customers are the drivers of transportation companies and the passengers, since the booth is located near the bus stop. Olga buys the newspapers and magazines very early in the morning and remains at the booth until noon.


The business has had good results and profits that help her to provide for her household. Olga plans to buy some more booths and start to offer books. This is her third loan with MFP. She feels very happy to be part of her community bank where there is trust and renews her commitment to continue to work responsibly. The loan will be invested in the purchase of more books and magazines that are of the interest of her customers
