A loan of $300 helped to buy bananas wholesale.


Estefita's story

Estefita is 37 years old. She is a cheerful and hard-working woman who lives together with her partner and two children in her own home. Her business is selling bananas. She gets up very early in the morning and heads for her stall in the town market. There she receives bananas which a farmer brings to her. She has been in this business for six years and, up to now, she has worked alone. What she enjoys about her business is that it makes her an income which allows her to support her partner with their household expenses and also cover their children's education expenses. She feels comfortable with the work that she does as she considers it to be profitable. She has regular customers who buy her products. In this way, she manages to sell everything that she offers on her stall. Estefita has ideas of growing her business and buying in larger quantities, knowing that this will make her more profits. This will be her tenth loan from MFP. She hopes to be able to count on your help so that she can continue in her work. She will invest the sum she has requested in buying bananas wholesale.
