Carmen's story

Carmen is 32 years old and lives with her two children, Maryorid y Carlos, who she loves with lots of enthusiasm and adoration. They live in their own home in the town of Ahuac.
Her main business is a grocery store with 3 years of experience. Recently she started a business that offers internet access. She has 11 computers for the townspeople to connect to the world-wide-web.She is also a good field worker and cultivates land she inherited from her parents. She mainly grows flax seeds, a type of plant used for natural drinks with healing properties. She works with ease with all of these jobs because she is a hard worker. She wants to take this opportunity to have more animals which is another one of her activities consisting of raising guinea pigs and pigs. She feeds them every day and dedicates a lot of time to them. She built stables and corrals to keep the animals in and once they are mature sells them to butchers that visit her house.
This will be her 15th loan with MFP and she is very thankful for the support received all of this time since she was able to invest in her business and make it stable. This is why she promises on being punctual with the loan payments. She is happy being a part of this group formed of responsible and united people.
Carmen will use the loan to buy more pigs to grow her business and increase profits.
