A loan of $1,100 helped supply her store with various products.

Mila's story

Mila, 31, lives with her husband and their 2 children in her parents' house. She has had her store for 6 years. She initially sold stationary, and later began selling foodstuffs, which now sell more frequently. Since selling food, she works in the store every day including weekends. With time, demand for products has increased, with her customers asking for animal feed, be it for birds or cattle. In addition, she works as a farmer, principally growing potato and corn, another way she tries to improve her income. Going forward, Mila wants to continue selling products as her customers need. This is her seventh loan from MFP. She is very happy in knowing she has financial support, because of being a responsible person in paying back, and she also likes being part of her community bank because all the members support one another. She thanks those who will be donors for the loan she is asking for, since it will be very useful in the progress of her business. She will use the loan she is asking for to increase her business with various products, as well as continue planting corn, for which she will buy fertilizer.
