A loan of $325 helped expand general store and increase inventory.


Sandra's story

Sandra is a 23-year-old single mother who lives with her son and her two brothers. She provides excellent customer service to the people who frequent her small general store, which she has had for a year. What she likes about her job are the conversations she has with her customers, which is why she knows a lot of people and forges new friendships. Furthermore, her business is lucrative because she is the only one who sells basic need items in the area, so her business is prospering. This is her first time dealing with a microfinance institute and with a loan from MFP. With the money that she is requesting, she will have her shop expanded and purchase more products to better stock her business.
