Sherly's story

Sherly is 27 years old and is a hardworking woman. She has lived with Luis, her husband, for 6 years. They are both awaiting the arrival of their next child, as she is six months pregnant. They live together in their own home, located in the community of Pilcomayo. Since she was young, she has worked for herself, since her motto is "progress". Her main activity is selling food. At first she had a restaurant where she sold homemade food. Over time she acquired a more attractive place, located in a central area. There she started to sell tamales, coffee, juice and different beverages. She works tirelessly Monday through Sunday without stopping, since that's the only way to get results. As she experienced her growth, she faced a new challenge. She married and joined a family, which gives her strength now that she is awaiting her first child. Luis, besides being an exemplary husband, is a responsible police officer who watches out for society's wellbeing. Her goal now is to invest in her restaurant and make it known. This is her fourth loan with MFP, where she hopes to have your cooperation to cement her plans. She also promises to make her payments on time, as she did with previous loans. She also likes being a part of the association because all of its members are responsible people and very supportive. Upon receiving your help, Sherly will invest the money she has asked for in buying quality materials to remodel her new baby's room. 'It's almost done", she remarks.
