A loan of $1,075 helped to buy brick making raw materials.

Lizbeth's story

Lizbeth, 29, is a widow. She lives with her mother, grandmother and children in her parents’ house. Since she was a child she has manufactured bricks. Ever since then she learned how to prepare this type of material. Today, it’s her source of income in that she owns a factory that she runs. She hires hands to help her continue to move forward with the production she has proposed.

She works every day and expects to produce 30,000 bricks monthly to sell. Profits she will earn will be for the economic support of her family. For this reason she makes quite an effort working and watching over the brick making process. Later on she’d like to have another business that earns more income.

This is her 13th loan with MFP. She is happy to know that she can count on having financial support. Besides, she enjoys being part of her communal bank because all her fellow members are responsible and mutually supportive people.

She thanks all the people who will fund the loan she’s requesting because it will be very useful for her business’ progress.

She will use the loan she gets to buy more supplies and materials that will be useful in brick making.
