Marina's story

Marina, 65, is a good, kind and very responsible woman. She’s married and has children who are all independent adults now. She owns her house where she lives with her husband spending cheerful days; they work hard because they want to give each other the best.

Marina’s work consists in selling fast food. She spoke with her neighbor and asked if she could sell from his house’s corner and they ceded the space to her. Now, she goes out nightly to sell salchipapas [fried potatoes with fried sausage], salchipollos [fried potatoes with fried chicken], and Broaster-style chicken and other products. She knows that any job will turn out well with effort. Her plan now is to make her food sales business grow.

This will be her 2nd MFP loan and she hopes for your collaboration so that her plans can gel. She also promises to once again make her installment payments. She will use the requested amount to buy ingredients like rice, chicken, potatoes and more as well as some kitchen tools to start her new project.
