A loan of $975 helped construction of a site for her business.

Laura's story

Laura is 58 years old and lives with her husband, who is a shop assistant and helps her where possible. She sells drinks on a retail basis in front of her house. This is an activity she has undertaken for the last two years, and complements with the sale of food (barbecue and ceviche) on Saturdays and Sundays, as these are the days on which there's most demand. What she likes most about her work is the extra income that it generates, which strengthen her family budget, and because she can count on a faithful clientèle, it has all gone well up until now. This is her sixth loan with MFP. With the money she is asking for, she will construct an adequate site to sell drinks and food, in order to provide her customers with a better service.
