A loan of $625 helped restaurant expansion.

Nancy's story

Nancy is 34 years old and lives with her young son Bryan, who is only 3 years old. She knows how to get ahead despite challenges which have come up over the years. Nancy lives in a rented house and always pursues her dream of a better life.

She gets up very early to get her peaceful and playful son ready to attend the educational center, and to prepare everything for her restaurant business on a centrally located street in the city. Beginning at 7:00 a.m. she sells breakfast to her devoted diners who leave more than satisfied with the delicious food that Nancy prepares. Later at noon she offers lunch, and when she has finished selling lunch at dusk she begins to prepare dinner for people who arrive, tired after work and in search of a meal to satisfy their hunger.

Thus pass the days for this hardworking woman. Between various meals and eager diners, Nancy sets aside time in her busy life to attend to her young son, who helps her by behaving well and learning everything he is taught in school.

This is the sixth loan she has received from MFP and she will be sure to make each payment because she is responsible and demonstrates this in every decision in her life. Nancy has many goals and knows that she will achieve them because of her good willpower. She plans to invest the money she is requesting to expand and improve her business to offer better service to her customers.
