A loan of $400 helped to buy sawdust for making bricks.


Zenaida's story

43 year old Zenaida is a serious woman. She lives with Fernando, her husband. They have 7 children, but only 5 of them live with them in their house. She feels that things are developing well as, thanks to her husband's efforts and her own efforts, she was able to buy a brickworks. Her daughters and sons help her there and so she is happy and she can offer support to her family. "The work is very hard and requires many people", Zenaida says. She already has 20 years of experience in this business and so she always has orders from established customers. She makes 22,000 a month and sells these at a good price right from the factory without having to transport them to somewhere else. Now she wants to buy new kilns that use better technology as now the family only have rustic means of heating the bricks. She is a member of the loan group The Entrepreneurs and this is her 19th loan from MFP. She is grateful for their support, with which she will achieve her goals. She promises to make her repayments on time. She also likes being part of the group and has known everyone for a long time. Zenaida will use the money she is requesting to buy sawdust for making the bricks.
