Emilia's story

Emilia is 43 years old, originally from the city of Santa Rosa, married, and the mother of two children who are her motivation to continue working diligently. Together they live their own house. For more than 20 years she has been working in agriculture, a business her family had engaged in for years. Without a doubt, it is not enough to support the household. For this reason she had to open a store using the savings she had. Since then she opens the doors to her store first thing in the morning, offering a variety of essential products. The friendliness with which she greets her customers has been a great boon to her sales. She has been in this business for 10 years and she says that she will continue working hard to build up her business. Furthermore she says that, thanks to her income, she has been able to buy more farm land and that now her husband works with her. In time, she hopes to be able to expand her home and her business. For that reason she asks for her 15th loan with MFP and she is very happy to know that she can once again count on your help. With the money she asks for, she will buy products like: bags of rice, sugar, oils, and detergents.
