Eva's story

Eva, 40, is a good woman, kind and very responsible. She is married and is the mother of 3 children aged 20, 19 and 15, who are students and still depend on her for their education, food and other necessities. She has her own house which she bought with a lot of effort together with her husband and which she shares with children during the day whilst her husband travels to other departments to perform odd jobs. Eva's work consists of cash sales and credit sales of bakery products. She is in charge of placing orders at a wholesale factory that bakes different kinds of products which include sponge cakes, wholemeal bread, cakes. She has a small business in her house where she distributes to her customers. She has been doing this work for 8 years and she does it alone. However, Eva is a woman who is never still as she also raises poultry and also plants regional tomatoes during certain seasons. What she likes about her work is that it allows her to use her time for other activities which gives her a good income and thus she can cover all the scheduled expenses. She would like to undertake a new project which is to set up a restaurant to improve her income. This will be her 17th loan with MFP and as such hopes for your collaboration to pursue her goals. On the other hand, she agrees once again to make her repayments as with the previous loans. With the requested amount she will buy more products for her store as well as a few ingredients and materials to start setting up her restaurant.
