A loan of $900 helped electrical cable.


Pilar's story

Pilar is a single 26 year old young lady who lives at home with her parents and three younger brothers. Pilar works with her father, installing alarm systems and electric fences for small private companies and public buildings. Her father does all the installation work and Pilar is in charge of finding new customers. They've been working this way for the past three years and the business generates good profits. What she enjoys most about her work is that it allows her to meet many entrepreneurs, who put her in touch with other companies, allowing her to build her customer base. In the future she wants to expand her business and in the near future, wants to provide provincial services.

This will be her 11th loan through MFP and she is committed to making her payments on time. She is very active in her communal bank and always shows concern about the group's well being. She will use the money from this loan to buy 200 meters of electrical cable.
