A loan helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.

Dina's story

Dina, 41, is a widow. She’s a very hard working woman living in her own house with her four beloved children for whom she wants to provide a good education. Dina is a very hard working woman; her goal is to stand out. The occupation she has is being a merchant. She has a store called “La Bodega de Dina” that is quite patronized by her buyers. Every morning she opens the store to receive her customers who like the variety of products she sells. What she likes best about her work is chatting with her customers because this is one of the skills she uses to win over a larger number of consumers. She’s been in business for 5 years and considers the most difficult part having to stand almost all day. In time she hopes to increase profits and enlarge her sales stand.

This is her first loan with MFP. She feels that it will be very helpful for her store’s progress and is willing to repay in a timely fashion. She will use the requested loan to buy more stock merchandise for her store.
