Tania's story

Tania is a 26-year old single mother who lives with her parents and her young daughter Valentina. Tania is an exemplary mother; she works very hard for her little girl. A year ago she started to work at a food stand inside the local high school. She sells candy, cookies, soda, and other goods. She wakes up very early to work at the food stand, and she brings her daughter with her. Her favorite part of her job is the free time she has with her daughter while they wait for the students' breaks. She hopes to offer more variety at her food stand in order to satisfy her clients who are the students and teachers at the school. This will be her first loan with MFP, and she pledges to make her payments punctually and is thankful to her fellow community bank members for giving her the opportunity to work with them. With the loan she will purchase products to restock her food stand like: cookies, candies, sodas, and other products.
