A loan of $1,075 helped to buy tables and chairs to outfit her locale.

Beatriz's story

Beatriz is 23 years old and lives in her own home with her parents and her younger sisters. The hardworking young woman works full time at her business and this is how she helps her parents. Every morning Beatriz wakes up at the first ray of sun to go to her food selling business that is set up in a market in her area. She is the manager and she serves with the help of three young people. She is very satisfied with the business because it generates good earnings for her since it is well located. She serves from 8 in the morning selling breakfasts. Starting at midday she sells different meals and in the afternoons she prepares to serve lunch. Although she often doesn't have enough to serve due to the number of guests who seek her delicious food and the low prices that she offers, she is planning on growing her business and opening another one in the area. This is the sixth loan she has had with MFP and she promises to make her payments on time since she doesn't want to look bad to the people who made this contribution possible that will keep her working in search of progress. Beatriz is planning on investing the loan she is asking for in the purchase of tables and chairs she needs to better outfit the business she is going to open. She hopes to improve her earnings in this way.
