A loan of $575 helped to buy cases of beer.


Ana's story

21-year old Ana is a dynamic, hardworking woman. She is single and lives with her 14-year old brother, her uncle, her grandfather, her stepfather, and her cousin in a house that belongs to her mother.

Ana earns her living selling beer which she keeps in a fridge in her house so that it remains at the right temperature for her customers. She’s been doing this job for four years; her uncle helps with sales to her customers. Ana really enjoys earning an income as it enables her to help her family with various expenses. She also enjoys the free time she has to do other activities such as studying.

Ana plans to expand the business and become a distributor. This will be her second loan with MFP, and she is grateful for the money she has received. She enjoys working with the members of her community bank as they are committed and supportive. With the money from the loan she plans to buy large quantities of beer, always seeking the lowest price so that she will earn the best profit possible.
