A loan of $725 helped buy food.

Ena's story

Ena, 38, lives with her husband (a businessman) and their small child who is in elementary school. The house they live in is their own.

She has a small kiosk in one of the installations of an educational institution. She sells food, soft drinks, and sweets only in the mornings. She has been doing this for four years. Additionally, in the afternoons and her free time she sells brand name natural medicines. Due to her performance she rose to become a supervisor and trainer. She feels very satisfied with her work. What she likes best about her work is feeling like a useful person. Also, it is very profitable for her because she has established customers and her earnings are good. In the future she would like to have her own restaurant.

She has had five loans with MFP. What she likes about her group is that they support each other, are communicative, and are very responsible. She will use the money she is asking for to buy groceries for her business of selling food. She will also buy natural medicines to have in stock.
