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


Sandra's story

Sandra, 30, is a hardworking, enterprising, very cheerful woman living with her spouse and three children who are 13, 9 and 6 years of age respectively in a rented house. Sandra sells soft-drinks and beer. She has a locale set up as a bar that’s open from the afternoon into the night. She set up chairs and tables there to take care of customers as well as a freezer to cool her beverages. She’s been in business eight years and also employs a young man who waits on tables earning a weekly salary. What she likes about her work is that it generates income because the men prefer it and she’s able to help her husband cover household expenses this way. She plans to expand the locale and improve its environment.

This would be her 3rd MFP loan so she hopes for support from all of you. She will use the requested amount to buy larger amounts of beer and soft-drinks of assorted brand to earn a better profit margin.
