Milka's story

Milka is 25, single, and she lives with her parents and two siblings. Her daily work is selling drinks (soft drinks and beer). She has the business in her own house, and it enables Milka to get ahead. She has been doing this work for three years. She is located in a busy area and near a tourist place. People from all over frequently buy her drinks due to the regional heat. Milka likes her work because she gets to know a lot of people and have friendly conversations with them. Also, she is able to pay for her professional studies with the income generated from this business.

This is her third loan with MFP. What she likes about working with her group is that they all demonstrate responsibility, which has led to confidence and unity. Milka will use the money she is asking for to buy chairs, tables, and more drinks for her business.
