A loan of $350 helped to increase her inventory.

Hilda's story

Hilda, 33, is a very hard-working woman and the mother of 4 children; she lives with her partner in their own house. Two years ago she began to sell food items and vegetables. Since then she has become increasingly focused on her store and little by little has been increasing the items she stocks. She really enjoys tending to her store. So, on top of helping her husband with his banana plantations, she comes back home early to tend to her customers because this produces additional income for her home. Her greatest difficulty at the moment is not having sufficient funds to stock her store. This is the reason for requesting this loan, to stock her store with a wider variety of items, especially food items and sweets. Because this is her first loan with MFP, she has high expectations of her communal bank but she also pledges to be punctual with her repayments.
