A loan of $375 helped to buy an additional PC to improve her vidiogames business.

Violeta's story

Violeta, 41, lives in her own house with her husband, Héctor, 41, who’s employed in a firm as an operator, and their two minor children in a densely populated neighborhood in the north of the city.

Every day is a day of constant work for this dedicated woman. She never rests and always looks for ways to help her husband meet household expenses.

A year ago she set up a videogame business in one of the rooms in her house. She has a lot of customers, mostly children and youngsters, who like to amuse themselves with these kinds of games. One of her children runs the business while she works as a child care provider at a day care center near her home.

The child care job pays her a salary sufficient for her personal needs. If this weren’t enough, she also works attaching beadwork to articles of clothing. In this job, she works with a middleman who leaves the items of clothing with her and then pays her when she delivers the finished products. Since she’s a very enterprising woman, she plans for later in the future to improve the set up in the videogames business in order to improve her profits.

This is her 7th loan with MFP and she pledges to repay on time because she is very grateful to all the persons who make the loan that will allow her to continue working towards progress possible.

Violeta plans to use the requested funds to buy an additional machine for the videogames business hoping thus to increase the number of customers that can visit daily.
