A loan of $350 helped improvement of market stall.


Nerida's story

Nerida is 24 year old and lives with her young son Wilder, only 3 years old, in a peaceful and cozy rented house that they have lived in for 1 year.

Each day is a struggle; she must get up very early to bring her son to daycare, where he spends most of the day. Later, she makes her way to the city market to open her stall, where she sells meat. She has had this stall for 1 year, and depends on it for income.

Nerida works and cares only for her son, because a mother's love has no limit. Although life has put her through difficult tests, she has faced them with strength.

She likes her business because it is profitable and she is able to run it by herself without difficulty, making progress in the trade as she meets people who sell meat wholesale and also becomes more well known in the market, allowing her to build a customer base.

This is her third loan from MFP, and she is inclined to make all her payments on time because she doesn't want to be on bad terms with her community bank; she knows the trust they have placed in her deserves to be returned with respect. She plans to invest the money she has requested to improve her meat stall, beginning with the purchase of a meat cutter and a small display case.
