A loan of $100 helped to stock her business with sodas and drinks.


Fortunata's story

Fortunata is 39 years old and married. She and her husband have two children. From the time she was young she worked in agriculture. After she got married she was busy caring for her children. She decided a year ago to start a business selling sodas and drinks, and 4 months ago she purchased a display case for the sodas. She likes to stay busy and above all, this helps generate needed income. To grow her business, she would like to start sellling beer, as she realizes there's a lot of demand. So far she doesn't have a refrigerator to keep the beer and drinks cold. This will be her 5th loan with MFP. The money will be used to stock her business.
