Rosa's story

Rosa is 65 years old, she is a hardworking woman with a lot of ambition. She is married to José, who is retired and the father of their children, which are already independent. The two are taking care of a friend's house, and is there where they live.

She works in cooking and selling regional desserts, which she has learned to cook when she was young, thanks to her now deceased mother. She does the selling in a traveling way, walking around the city and in front of businesses. She has started it more than 18 years ago and now she counts on her husband's help to cook and package her sweets. She likes what she does, as it allows her to have an income to help pay for their expenses, besides having a job, as she did not have the opportunity to finish her studies.

This is her second loan with MFP; she is thankful for the opportunity to have a loan to reach her objectives. Moreover, she says she likes her communal bank, as she knows the majority of its members and she considers them responsible and supportive people.

With the requested amount, she will invest into buying ingredients for cooking her desserts: sugar, oil, flour, starch, butter and others.
