A loan of $375 helped to buy soft-drinks.

Florentina's story

Florentina, 57, lives in her birthplace with her two children in the house she inherited from her parents. For the last five years she’s been betting on and believing in her local market. She has a wholesale soft-drink, beverage and fruit nectar delivery firm that sells to retailers. These years of experience have given her the opportunity to manufacture her own brand of soft-drinks that she now distributes to distant cities. Her highest sales occur during hot weather. Because of the consistency of her work the business has been growing and now what she wants to do is to start operating in her country’s tropical cities.

She’s had 8 loan opportunities with MFP. In all this time of working her enterprise has improved considerably because every loan was used to increase her capital and she is proud of that. She will use the money she’s requesting to increase her working capital.
