Luzmila's story

Luzmila, age 42, is a single woman. She lives with her mother, Florencia, and her sister, Dionicia, in her own home, located in the town of Cajas Chico. She does not yet have her own family, which does not matter much to her because she is satisfied with taking care of her siblings. She makes bricks for a living alongside her family. She produces an average of 25 thousand bricks a month thanks to the workers that she hires because they can boost profits and increase capital this way. She has 20 years of experience, during which time she has been able to gain many customers who await her arrival at the local open air market so that they can purchase her quality bricks. The main supplies that she uses to produce the bricks are bark to burn the molds, sawdust, and sand. She now hopes to improve the quality of her bricks so that she can boost profits. She is a member of the Mi Banco Communal Bank, and this is her 22nd loan with MFP. She is grateful for the support she gets from all of you since she will obtain the loan that she needs to achieve her goals. Furthermore, she promises to be punctual in making her repayments since the members of her association are responsible and united. Luzmila will invest the loan that she is requesting in purchasing the supplies she needs to produce bricks.
