A loan of $350 helped increase merchandise.

Isabela's story

Isabela, 33, lives with her life partner and father of their four children in her own house.

With her tender look and ample smile, she takes care of her grocery store everyday. She and her husband set up the store in a space in her house. Additionally, Isabela helps her husband with his farming work. But, most of her time is spent in her business. Throughout the years she has been able to attract a lot of customers.

She starts working at six in the morning preparing the condiments that she sells in her store. Eight in the morning is when they are in their greatest demand. Most of her customers, housewives, are the ones who buy the ground condiments that she makes. She gets good income from these products. That is why she takes the necessary time to liquefy the spices.

This is her first loan with MFP, so everything is new for her. She takes an oath to make all of her payments punctually. The money she is now asking for is to buy sweets, which is what her customers are requesting.
