A loan of $925 helped to stock up with soda and beer.

Vitalina's story

Vitaliana is 72 years old and lives in her own home with her husband, 74 year-old Maximiliano, and their two eldest children. She has nine children in total.

For the past 20 years, Vitaliana has been selling soda, mineral water and fresh and frozen beer at affordable prices. She carries out her business together with her husband so that she can also do her shopping and household chores without losing customers. Vitaliana enjoys her business a lot and she always provides good customer service. This has made hers the busiest business in the neighborhood, in spite of the fact that she carries out the business from her own home.

Vitaliana feels very happy in her work and she feels even happier on the weekends when her sales increase. In the future, she would like to build a small premises next to her home so that she can sell a variety of products.

This is Vitaliana's 5th loan with MFP and, as a long-standing member, she pledges to keep making her repayments on time as she has up until now. She will invest her loan money in buying more soda and beer wholesale, so that she can keep making her sales.
