A loan of $600 helped to buy supplies to make her dishes.

Sherly's story

Sherly, 29, is a very hardworking woman. She lives with Luis, her husband of seven years. They have a daughter, who illuminated their home a few months ago. And they live together in their own house.

She began to work on her own when she was young. Her motto is "to progress." Her main activity is selling food. In the beginning she had a restaurant where she sold home-cooked food. In time she acquired a more attractive place located in a central area where she rented a large space and began to sell tamales, coffee, juice, and a variety of beverages and small appetizers. She works without rest from Monday through Sunday because this way she'll get good results.

On a par with her growth, she confronted a new challenge, got married, and started a family, which is now strengthened with the arrival of her first child. Her goal now is to invest in her restaurant and make it known.

She belongs to Los Emprendedores Solidarity Group and this is their seventh loan with MFP. She hopes for a small loan so she can achieve her objectives. She also promises to make her payments punctually as she did with her previous loan. In addition, she likes being part of her group because all the members are responsible and supportive people.

Sherly will invest the money in buying supplies to make her dishes. If there's enough money left over she'll be able to put tiles on the floor of her house.
