Lucía's story

Lucía is 45 years old, married, and lives with her husband and their three children. She has always enjoyed management and hoped to have her own prosperous business, and her dreams became reality eight years ago. With much effort and work outside the home, she was able to pull together enough money to install her own store in her home, and thanks to her good management skills it is still doing well. Every day she wakes up very early to do laundry and makes herself available for customer care, because mothers leave very early to do their grocery shopping. The difficult thing, however, is that the space is becoming smaller and smaller. In the future, she hopes to expand her store, which would be a great investment since her clients are very loyal and there are always new customers to serve. She has been working with MFP for six years. This is her 15th loan and she has always maintained good communication with her colleagues--their friendship forms a solid base for the group. With this money, she will buy a refrigerator so she can offer beverages this summer.
