Mirla's story

Mirla, age 20, is a single young woman who works hard because she wants to provide a better quality of life for her parents, who instilled in her to always serve one's family.


Her day begins at 4am, which is the hour when she wakes up and starts the preparations for her work. She cleans and disinfects all of the utensils that will be used in her production routine for making bread. Mirla has help from her parents when performing her work since they are great teachers. She learned from them the most minute details about the business. Mirla has been in this line of work for more than five years and recalls being interested as a young girl. She is doing well and has many customers since she never fails to complete and deliver an order at the correct time and place. Mirla hopes to continue working and growing little by little in order to improve her business.


This is her first loan with the MFP organization. She expects to continue with her goals and her projected growth. Mirla is very determined to complete her payments and appreciates knowing that her group is punctual and responsible. The amount of 1,000 PEN that she requested will be used to buy ingredients, supplies, and materials for her business. She wants to update and increase her production.
