A loan of $1,075 helped to buy merchandise to stock her business.

Ana's story

Ana is 49 years old. She lives with her husband and two dependent children in her own home.

For 12 years, this enterprising woman has been selling medical supplies such as syringes, surgical gloves, medicines, etc. She makes her sales personally and offers her products for sale to hospitals, pharmacies and local medical practices. She also sells wholesale. Ana works all day long, from Monday to Friday. She only rests on weekends.

Ana is a businesswoman who also has motherly duties to fulfil and she makes sure she does not neglect her children. This is why she distributes her hours so that she can spend time with her family. Ana says that she has a very profitable business and a good source of income since she has the contacts she needs to make her sales. In the future, she plans to be a big supplier of medical products in her area.

This is Ana's eighth loan with MFP and she is very happy to have financial support. She has always shown herself to be responsible in making her repayments. She enjoys being part of her community bank because all the members are responsible people who are very supportive of each other. She would like to thank the people who made this loan possible as it will be very useful to her in making progress in her business. Ana plans to invest her money in acquiring a larger quantity of merchandise as she has several pending orders to fill. In this way, she hopes to continue making progress.
