A loan of $300 helped restock her business.

Dora's story

Dora is 45 years old. She has three daughters who still go to school and she lives with her husband, who’s a police officer.
She’s been selling groceries for the last 19 years. Among her items you can find, rice, sugar, beans as well as candy and soft drinks. In order to do so, she uses a room of her house with a window to the street as a small shop which she manages with the support of her daughters.
She enjoys this activity because it allows her to be in contact with her customers, sharing nice talks and good service. At the same time, this business is very profitable because she’s located in a good area and she’s the only one who owns this kind of business.
In the future, Dora would like to open a minimarket where she could offer all kinds of products of the people of her town.

This is the first time she requests for a loan at MFP. She has only good words for her community bank, especially because she knows everybody there and she's very happy to be a part of this group. She will use the money she’s requesting to buy basic food items, candy and soft drinks to restock her business.
