A loan of $500 helped to refurbish her store and buy kitchen utensils/Refaccionar su local y comprar utensilios de cocina.


Maria's story

Maria is 47 years old and she lives with her husband and two of their six children. Her dedication to selling food meant that they built their own small restaurant in their house. Her clients asked for this as she earns their fondness and respect as she offers good customer service and good seasoning. She has been doing this for two years and what she likes about her job is that cooking well satisfies her clients. It is profitable as it is located in a good area which many people pass through, and it is going well for her. This is the second time that she has asked for a loan through MFP. With this money she wants to make over some parts of her store as well as buying kitchen utensils (pots, plates among other things).
