A loan of $500 helped to increase the quantity of products in her store.

Olinda's story

Olinda is 30 years old and lives with her husband and 4 children. She is a business owner because three years ago she was able to open a store, achieving through this an increase in the economic income in her home. For Olinda, working in sales and customer service is what she most likes to do as she gets to know her neighbors. Moreover, within her community it is one of the few stores that exists, and this favors her, which is why her sales are good. Above all, helping people to satisfy their nutritional needs is satisfying for Olinda. The difficult thing is purchasing her merchandise in the nearby city and transporting it to her community. It is her second loan with MFP and she has not had problems with payment to date. She has been responsible and punctual in all of the payments. With the money requested Olinda plans to increase the quantity and variety of the products that she sells and have more to offer to her clients.
