A loan of $1,075 helped construction materials.

Flor's story

Flor, 36, is a woman with a strong sense of community. She lives with her husband, a construction worker and their 2 children in a house that they own. She and her husband have wanted to improve the house for 10 years. During the summer, Flor operates a business selling cold drinks along the beach. This extra income helps, with her husband's income, to move the project along. Over the years, they have been working on the framing, walls and roof of their much-desired house. Flor is happy with the progress they have made together. Her goal now is to treat the walls for insects. Next, she wants to tile the floors. Her overall goal is to provide a comfortable place for her children to live. This is Flor's first MFP loan. She knows that it will help her to continue building her house and, consequently, she is committed to repaying the loan on time. She will use the money from the loan to buy tubing for the house's lighting, along with sand, cement and other building materials.
