Rosa's story

Rosa is 33 years old, and she is a cheerful woman. She lives with her ​​husband Ricardo, with whom she has 3 children who she cares for in the home that she bought a year ago. Every morning, in the early hours of the day she goes to work to keep her business in good condition. During the morning, she prepares a breakfast consisting of a nutritious broth for the workers. Since the place she rents is located in a central area of the town, from Monday to Sunday she stays at her business without resting, because it is the only income for her family.

"My husband and I have been working full time in our restaurant, as we have many customers, which is why we hire additional staff to help us improve our earnings," she says. This credit is her second with MFP, and she was thankful for the opportunity for progress that she was given by her earlier loan. For that reason, she promises to be punctual in her payments, since this has already helped to increase her business.

Rosa will invest the money in buying goods such as bulks sacks of rice and sugar. That way she can earn more profit.
