A loan of $550 helped inventory.


Lidia's story

Lidia is 28 years old and is a very hard working and loving mother. She lives in her own home with her husband, 42 year old Edgar, and her four children to whom she wants to provide a good education. Every day she opens her grocery store early in the morning in order to service her neighbors. She is a very able salesperson who knows how to treat her customers. She usually convinces them to buy just a little more. Her store is very well stocked and she manages it well.

What she enjoys most about her work is the relationships she has with her customers. Her biggest challenge is having to stay in her store all day. Eventually she hopes to expand her store in order to be able to sell more items.

This will be her second loan through MFP and she is prepared to save a bit each day in order to be able to make her payments. She is very responsible within her communal group. She will use the money from this loan to increase her grocery inventory and stock her store.
