Maria's story

Maria is 56 years old and she lives with her husband and their only son who is single and supports the business. She dedicates herself to buying and selling take-away bread produce (maize, plantain, yuca among others that are eaten a lot). She is a wandering saleswoman in her local market and she has been doing this for 1 year. What she likes about her work is the direct contact that she has with the public and that it is profitable as she tells us that her products sell like hot cakes each day. It is the first time that she has asked for a loan through MFP. The money will be invested in buying more bread produce and to rent a stable stall in the market where she sells.
