A loan of $375 helped to buy food ingredients and utensils.


Liz's story

Liz, 36, is a hard-working, cheerful mother of two children, the eldest a son who is 13 and in school, and the youngest a precious little baby girl born just two weeks ago, and another reason for her work hard to give her family a better lifestyle. Liz has a job that allows her to carry out many activities. She sells hot dogs and hamburgers in the evenings from her home and has been in business for several years. She has not been going out lately because she just had her baby and is still taking it easy, although she is planning to start working again soon.

For about five years she has been in business and works alone, because she earns more income. She enjoys everything she does since she loves to cook and is always available for any kind of work since she also sets up catered buffets and other types of orders she receives from her customers. Her sales volume always provides a good income.

Like any woman wanting to get ahead, she has many goals, but for now the main thing is staying in business as it is because she is happy with it. This is her 11th loan through MFP and she is glad to be receiving it to help her meet her objectives. She is committed to paying it back on time and not fail the group she belongs to because all the members are responsible and kind. She plans to use the 1,000 PEN to buy food ingredients and supplies to keep on working, as well as new utensils to replace some of the worn out ones, to make her job easier.
