A loan of $725 helped buy more products and drinks to stock her store.


Luz's story

Luz, age 55, is a very hard-working and happy woman. She lives in her own house with her husband and their four children.

Years ago she sold “salchipapas” ((a dish maD. of potatoes and fried sausage) in the doorway of her house. She had to stop for health reasons. After that she preferred to set up her store in a space in her house. The things she sells the most are carbonated drinks and energy drinks. Most of her customers are young athletes.

Two years have passed, and she feels more at ease about her finances. Also, it does not jeopardize her health, which is the most important thing to her. Later on she wishes to buy a platform where she can display her products.

This is her tenth loan with MFP. She pledges to continue being very punctual. She knows how beneficial it will be to increase her working capital. She will use the requested loan to buy more merchandise, especially more drinks.
