A loan of $675 helped purchase goods for general store.


Agustina's story

Agustina is a 52-year-old single mother who lives with her two underage daughters. Eight years ago, after much effort, she opened up her own general store because she had to be both the mother and father of the household, facing the difficulties of life on her own. However, thanks to her great business abilities, she was able to take advantage of the opportunities that came her way. Thus, she obtained the general store she had always wanted. She is fully dedicated to her shop; she never neglects it and keeps it open to meet her neighbors’ demands. Customer service is her priority, and she manages to make hers a lucrative business despite the high prices. This is Agustina’s third loan with MFP, and she has always been a very responsible and enthusiastic client in her group since she motivates the other members to face adversity. With the money that she is requesting, she will obtain more goods for her store, thus making it one of the most competitive shops in her locality.
