A loan of $375 helped buy boxes of fruit for retail sales.

Norma's story

Norma, age 33, lives in her own house with her 40 year old husband, Adolfo, and their three small children. Together they put forth great effort every day in order to get ahead.

This hard-working woman sells fruit in a stand that she has at the market. Her husband farms in the country’s forest. She travels twice a month to get the fruit that she sells at her stand. She also sells fruit at the homes of customers who place orders. This way she is assured of sales.

She really likes her work because it is profitable enough, and it allows her to help her husband with the regular household expenses. This is how Norma spends her days; she works with great effort because she wants to get her family ahead.

As she is an enterprising woman, she has future plans to increase the variety of fruit that she sells. She wants to do this to improve her earnings.

This is her second loan with MFP, and she pledges to make her payments on time. She does not want to disappoint the people who made this loan possible. It will allow her to continue working in order to grow in her business. Norma plans to use the requested loan to buy various boxes to transport the fruit that she sells. This is the way she plans to fill all of her orders.
