A loan of $950 helped to buy wood, nails and iron for her construction business.


Edeliza's story

Edeliza is 20. Two years ago she formed a family with her husband Teodoro and son Bruno, they currently live at her mother's house in the local community of Daniel Hernandez. Together with her husband they work in construction, while he does the hard labour work, she cooks for all the workers, this way they can work more and finish the project faster. Thanks to their efforts they saved money and are now building their own house at a piece of land inherited by her mother. She hopes to keep supporting her husband in the construction of houses to increase their income because even though their son is young, they want to be able to give him a better quality of life. This is her first loan with MFP and she promises to make the repayments punctually. She likes to work with the group that she joined because they are showing her how to manage her money. Edeliza will invest the money requested in buying several pieces of wood, nails and iron for the construction projects they are working on.
