Teodora's story

Teodora, 64, lives with her husband, her two children and grandchildren in her own house. She has had a store for over 8 years in her home. Thanks to her house’s location very near an avenue there is a lot of foot traffic. She works in the store every day; her husband helps her since her sales are best during local festivals such as: patron saint day, national days, all saints’ day, etc.

Teodora takes advantage of every opportunity for her business to grow; she is always on the lookout for ways to innovate and improve her store with new products and this is how she stays active in the business.

She enjoys her work very much because she likes to take care of her customers so she intends to continue working with the aim in mind to better stock her sales stand.

This is her 10th loan with MFP and she is happy to know that she has financial support. Besides, she enjoys being part of her communal bank because all the members are responsible and mutually supportive.

She thanks all the people who will fund the loan she’s requesting that will be very useful for her business’ progress. She will use the requested funds to continue to increase stock merchandise for her store.
