Sara's story

Sara is 45 years of age and is a very enterprising woman. She shares her life with her husband, Hernan (44 years of age), who is a taxi driver and her two daughters, Cecilia (16) and Zoila (4). Together they live in their own home. For some years now, Sara has run her own pharmacy - a service installed in her home, with the help of some nuns - who gave her the opportunity to have this business in their neighborhood. Being the only person who sells pharmaceutical products, has been very profitable. She loves her work because it gives her time to care for their children. Sometimes her husband Hernán helps with the the housework, and this has helped make them a very close family.

Sara has hopes of expanding her business, which will help her succeed, however, in order to do that, she will need to build onto her existing house with good quality materials. Making these changes will proviD. more space for the pharmacy. She knows she has a long way to go, but isn't daunted by the tasks ahead and still works hard to meet her goals. This is her third loan with MFP and promises to be very punctual in the re-payment of the installments. She plans to use the requested loan to purchase more products and increase sales.
