A loan of $300 helped purchase cheese & avocados to fulfill her customers' orders.

Eva's story

Eva is 35 years old and lives in a rented house with her three young children who are in school. They want to get ahead together. Eva and her family live in a populous neighborhood north of the city. For more than three years, this hardworking woman has been selling different food products (cheese, avocados, and meat) that she acquires when she travels to the neighboring province. Upon her return, she distributes her merchandise to the stores in her neighborhood. Eva says her business is profitable enough since she has established customers who buy merchandise on a weekly basis. With her earnings, she is able to provide the best for her children. Eva says she has several jobs since she also works as a bus fare collector for a vehicle that her brother drives. She says she is proud to have achieved the proper registration papers needed to perform this work. In the distant future, Eva plans to expand her food sales business so that she can generate good revenues.

This is her first loan with MFP. Eva is very grateful to everyone who made this loan possible so that she can continue working and making progress. She plans to invest the loan she requested in the purchase of more merchandise, such as cheese and avocados, since she has several orders from different stores. In this manner, she hopes to improve her income.
