A loan of $300 helped to stock her hardware store.


Patricia's story

Patricia, 38, is a friendly, responsible woman. She and her husband have two children who are 6- and 4-years old, respectively. They rent the house where they live. Patricia works hard because she wants to give her family a better quality of life. She owns her own hardware business. The store is in the center of town, on a street with lots of traffic. She started the business three months ago and can count on help from her husband because he also works at the store. The business is small, like most new businesses, but Patricia hopes to grow it over time. So far, she's doing pretty well. Not as well as she wants, perhaps, but merchandise is going out as fast as it's coming in and she's making money. She hopes to consolidate her gains and firmly establish herself as a hardware merchant. This is her second MFP loan and she's counting on your support. For her part, she is committed to repaying this loan in the time agreed, just as she did her first loan. She says, too, that she is happy with her community bank because the members are responsible and supportive. Patricia will use this loan to buy merchandise to stock her hardware business.
