Annie's story

Annie, a primary school teacher, is 38 years old and she lives with her husband who supports her in everything. They own their own home. She dedicates herself to selling bricks, and she does this from a store she rented because it is in a commercial area. She has been doing this for around 9 years, and her husband supports her by being in charge of all the business' administration because she sometimes has to travel very far due to her professional career as a teacher. She really likes her job as it is a peaceful business and she gets to know a lot of people. As well as this she considers it to be profitable because she sells a product that is in daily demand and thta generates high earnings. In the future, Annie wants to have her own store, leaving behind rent payments. This is her 15th loan with MFP and she likes to work with her communal bank group because they are very organised. The solicited amount will be invested in increasing the amount of bricks she sells as she buys them and does not make them.
