Ines's story

Inés, age 46, is a happy and very dynamic woman. She lives with her partner, with whom she has three children ages 28, 9 and 3. They live together in her mother's home with her mother. Ines sells food and braided items. She runs both businesses in the "La Hoyada" market. She starts work very early in the morning; she and her partner go to their canteen, where they sell breakfasts in the mornings and lunches in the afternoons. At the other stall, she sells braided products. She has been doing this for ten years, and every day is better. So, she hopes to fix up her canteen and provide her customers with greater comfort. She has always enjoyed cooking, even as a young child. Thanks to her cooking, she makes a good income. This will be her tenth loan with MFP, and she promises to be punctual with the payments of her quotas. With the requested loan, she will purchase products, basic ingredients for making her food, and braided items to stock her business.
