Sara's story

Sara, 51, lives in her own house with her husband and two of their four children since the oldest two are independent adults. For several years now this enterprising woman has been making crafts at home. She makes figurines used to decorate homes and also Christmas decorations. She also makes paintings and keepsakes for baptisms, graduations, etc. Through this activity she earns her own income that helps her meet household expenses.

She is very well known in her neighborhood because she makes items that are well done at accessible prices so her neighbors always recommend her knowing of her responsibility.

She always welcomes the jobs she has to do with a smile. Sometimes she has a helper so she is always punctual with her work. She currently wants to take a ribbon decorating crafts course to expand the services she offers.

This is her 11th loan with MFP. She is very punctual with her payments as well as very responsible with her communal bank commitments.

She will use the requested loan to buy ribbons, fabrics and foam which are the supplies needed for her various fillings and accessories to continue making her crafts and improving profits.
