A loan of $725 helped to purchase ingredients for making her food.

Delia's story

Delia is 60 years old, and lives in her own house with her husband and 2 daughters. She has been selling food in the mornings from the doorway of her home for 21 years. She counts on her husband’s support, and he helps her move heavy items.

In the afternoons, she is busy cleaning her utensils and getting everything ready for the following morning. Delia believes the profitability of her business is due to the fact that she is located on a very busy street, and thanks to her good earnings she plans to rent a small space to open a restaurant.

This is her seventh loan through MFP, and she is a member that has shown herself to be very punctual with her payments. The funds she is now requesting would be invested into the purchase of non-perishable food items for preparing her foods, such as rice and sugar.
