Genoveva's story

Genoveva is 59 years old and she lives with one of her daughter in her own home. For the past 6 years she has sold traditional desserts in her region. When she first started she sold her products door to door but three years ago she set up a food stall. She sells her product every day until the very late hours of the evening. Every so often her son helps her to attend to clients. When she has sold out of her desserts she purchases more ingredients to prepare another batch. In the future she wants to produce more of her product to increase her earnings. This is her 14th loan with MFP (Kiva Field Partner). She is very happy to have this financial support and she knows that it will be very useful in the advancement of her business. She is also happy to be a member of her community bank because all of the other members are very responsible team players. The loan she requests will be invested in the purchase of ingredients in wholesale, and she will also purchase new plates and utensils used in her business.
