A loan of $750 helped to buy an industrial stove.


Myriam's story

Myriam, age 46, lives with her two children in her father’s house. They are her reason for living. Her business, which she has had for 17 years so far, is a soda fountain that she has installed at her house. It is located in front of a heavily traveled park, which is an advantage for her business. She devotes herself to her business every day. She has hired a chef to work in the kitchen and prepare fast food. She also sells all types of carbonated drinks according to customer requests and demand. Three years ago she made an important decision about her business. She remodeled it, and the cost was very high. It was beneficial because little by little more customers come to her establishment, especially on the week-ends. It has become a good option for leisure time and entertainment. She has projects to continue improving and implementing in her business. Therefore, she will continue her efforts. Since she has had the group loans from MFP she has demonstrated her responsibility and leadership in her group. She has served as a good investment example in the eight times she has requested a loan. This time she will use the money from the loan to buy an industrial stove, which she really needs in her business.
