Adilia's story

Adilia is 55 years old. Her husband is a merchant and her daughter is a university student. Since she was a young woman, Adilia has been selling food because she helped her mother in this line of work. After her mother passed away, Adilia inherited her vending location in the market. She is very proud to have been doing the same work as her mother for 40 years. She enjoys her work because, in her words, she was “born to do this”. She also has a wonderful time being with her customers, who visit her frequently to taste her traditional regional foods.

She has already had 10 previous loans with MFP. Adilia enjoys working with her communal bank group because the members understand each other and pay their installments responsibly. With the money she is requesting, she will purchase the necessary ingredients for making her regional dishes. She also would like to expand her business and create a pleasant environment for her customers.
