A loan of $750 helped to buy fish, sodas, and bananas in bulk.


Luz's story

Luz is 45 years old. She is a determined and cheerful woman who wants to succeed. Luz lives with her partner and two of their six children. She also has a niece for whom she strives to provide the best. Luz lives in her own home, which she was able to build with the help of her partner. She sells bananas, fish, and soft drinks from a space in her home that is well-suited. Luz has been in business for four years and remains busy by serving her neighbors and strangers, who she greets with kindness, joy and grace. Her niece helps with attending to the customers. What she likes about her job is being able to earn an income and socializing with the customers she has gained. She does not like whenever the prices of her products increase because this creates variations in her profit margins. Luz wants to expand her business because she knows there is great demand.

This will be her third loan with MFP. Luz enjoys working with her group because the members are responsible people. The amount she requested will be invested in her business by purchasing fish, sodas, and bananas in bulk quantities at a lower price. This will help her to improve her profit margins.
