Enith's story

Enith is 28 years old and is a hardworking and dynamic woman. She lives with Roy and her 3 children, aged 11, 8 and 3 years, in her own house. Enith sells food such as stews, roasts and fixed menus from a food stall she has located in front of the school near her house. She serves her customers there, the majority of which are students, teachers and passersby. She has been doing this for 2 years and is now well-known in the area. What she likes about her work is being able to count on an income, thanks to which she helps her partner with the household expenses, as he works in the wood industry and is often away from home for periods of upto 30 days. She plans to open a restaurant in her own home. This will be her 3rd loan with MFP. She is happy to have financial support to move her business forwards, which is why she agrees to be punctual with her repayments, as with her previous loans. With the amount requested, she will buy the ingredients needed to prepare the food such as rice, oil, beans and the like, looking to buy retail to make bigger profits.
