A loan of $375 helped to buy a grill.

Nancy's story

Nancy is 42 years old and very good-humored. She lives in her own home with her husband Julio, 42, and their three minor, school-aged children. Nancy makes and sells fast food (chicken and french fries) out of her mobile stand located four blocks away from her house and just outside her mother's house. She's been in this location for over four years and business is going well because it's in a busy place where people go to a nearby gym.

She has made considerable earnings over this period of time and is able to help her husband cover the children's school expenses, so her husband can cover the monthly payment they are making for their future home.

She enjoys her work and, every morning, patiently prepares the chicken she'll be selling since it is what most customers prefer. In the future she hopes to expand business to include juices, but what she needs urgently is a grill to cook the chicken. This is her ninth loan through MFP and she is committed to paying it back on time. She is very happy to be a part of the group. She plans to use the loan to buy a grill so she can provide better customer service.
