Edy's story

Edy is 34 years old, her partner is Gervasio, and she has three children from her marriage, who she cares for with a lot of love and tenderness in a rented house located in Hualahoyo.

For the past 4 years she has been the groundskeeper of the school in her locality, and she lives there with her family. For this work, she receives a monthly salary with which she provides for the expenses of her household, along with the earnings of her husband in his work as a bricklayer, who is currently employed in the construction of a park. Also, Edy works as a caretaker for orphaned children in a state-run childcare center; her job is to cook meals for the children, and she feels very fortunate to be able to help in this way. Her primary objective is to construct her own house on a piece of land that her husband inherited.

This is the fifth loan she has made with MFP, and she hopes to make her plans real with this financial help. On the other hand, she promises to complete her payments on time, as she has with her previous loans. She is thankful to be part of the group because all of the members are very responsible and supportive people. Edy will invest the asked for money in buying construction materials to lay the foundations of her house.
