A loan of $1,000 helped purchase hoses.


Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth is 27 years old and lives with her partner, who is the father of her two children. Her husband sells vegetables, while she operates a vehicle cleaning service for motorcycles, motorcars and automobiles. She operates her business in a rented space located a half hour from her house. To earn extra money, she also sells cold beverages which customers drink while they are waiting for their vehicles to be washed. She has been operating for 3 years and feels quite comfortable because her business is profitable since it is located in a commercial area. In the near future, Elizabeth would like to open a small bar to increase her earnings.

This is her 4th loan with MFP. She enjoys working with her group because the members always communicate with each other and make their payments on time. With the money she is requesting, she will buy hoses for her vehicle wash business because the ones she has now are deteriorating due to constant use. She would also like to purchase more beverages to sell to her customers.
