Mariluz's story

Mariluz is a very hard working woman who is 37 years old and lives with her husband and children in their own house.

For several years she has worked selling bread, a daily routine that Mariluz begins in early morning when she must go to acquire the breads in order to sell them later individually, and in this way she is able to earn an income. She is content with her work since it provides the income necessary to be able to help her family get ahead. In addition, she also works making clothing and weaving items, to provide extra income.

In the future she wants to keep working to create a more stable business like a store or something similar to increase her sales. This is her eighth loan with MFP. She has always been characterized as being very punctual with all her repayments. With the loan she is requesting she wants to buy a greater quantity of bread in order to increase her earnings.
