Silbera's story

Silbera is 42 years old and lives with her husband and their four children. She currently has her own home in the community of San José, which is in a jungle area.

For twenty years Silbera has been managing a grocery store, a business for which she has a great attachment. It gave her the opportunity to become recognized in her community, since she has many loyal customers. Silbera works from 5am until 8pm in what she feels is a comfortable activity that provides financially for her household necessities. In the future, she plans to expand her business and convert it into a mini-market with an attractive environment for her customers.

This is her sixteenth loan with MFP. Silbera assures us that these loans have brought her tremendous satisfaction. Therefore, she promises to continue making her payments on time. She also feels stronger and happier with her Communal Bank. The money she is requesting will be used to acquire more merchandise so that she will have a well-stocked grocery store.
