A loan of $900 helped buy bags of concrete and sand to roof her house.

Olga's story

Olga is 44 years old and a hard-working mother. She is married and has 3 children. She lives with two of them and her husband in their own house. She prepares and sells food. The dishes she cooks are the most demanded by her clients, and so she has managed to increase her income. On the other hand, she also rents out parasols during the summer season, which helps boost her profits a little bit more.

Her husband is a builder, which has enabled him to build their home. He has been working in the construction sector for 8 years and he’s now planning to roof and finish their house. Olga is very happy with these achievements and the fact that she will soon be living comfortably in her own home. She is looking forward to the improvements in her and her family’s quality of life once the house has been roofed and finished.

This is her first loan with MFP. She is aware that the amount will enable her to continue building her home, and she is committed to making all payments on time. With the loan money she plans to buy concrete and sand to finish the roofing.
