Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth, 53, is a responsible, very active mother. She lives in her own house in the company of her husband, Marcos, and three of their seven children. For the last 10 years Elizabeth has sold perishables in her grocery store located at home. She has also sold beauty products from even before her grocery store. She does well in both activities so feels very motivated to continue working. She likes dedicating all her time to her businesses because thanks to the profits from them she was able to pay for her older children’s education, who are now professionals; she only still has the last three to go. Because of this, this enterprising mother works with much responsibility and knows that she can count on your support and that’s her greatest security. She is, therefore, convinced that she can continue building a second story on her house and provide higher education to all her children.

This is her second loan with MFP and she promises to pay all her installments on time because she does not want to disappoint all the people who made the loan possible that will allow her to stay in business seeking progress.

Elizabeth invests in food items weekly for her business so will use the requested loan to buy rice, noodles and oil at wholesale. She will also buy cement and sand to finish building her house.
