A loan of $375 helped to buy more drinks.

Maria's story

44-year-old María is a brave and hard-working woman. She lives with her partner and has three children aged 23, 22 and 16 who are still dependent on her. She and her partner work hard so that they can provide them with a better quality of life.

María's business is selling drinks wholesale. She has a small wholesaler's and she provides her products on consignment for different social events. She has a small space in her home which she fitted out so that she could serve her customers there. She has the help of her children and her partner. What María enjoys about her work is that she can work together with her family and can arrange her time so that she is also able to carry out other activities. This business provides her with profits and, for that reason, she would like to continue working at this rhythm. She would like to expand her business with more products that are needed in her area.

This will be María's third loan from MFP. She likes the group to which she belongs as everybody is responsible and punctual in making their loan repayments. She hopes to be able to continue working with you as it enables her to strengthen her business. She will use the sum she has requested to buy more drinks to have in stock so that she can fill the orders that her customers place with her.
