A loan of $650 helped increase merchandise.

Sandra's story

Sandra is 34 year old and lives with her 2 small children and husband, who depend on her for everything. They live in their own house which is a result of her work efforts. At night she sells food outside of her home and, together with her husband, she also has a spare parts store, a business also started in her home.

They have had both businesses for 8 years but for a short while she left the food business. She soon realized she was becoming bored and started the business again. It is for this reason she likes her work, it keeps her busy since she considers herself a very active woman. She is happy because both businesses are profitable and complement the household income.

This is her second loan with MFP. The money she is requesting is to increase the merchandise of her spare parts store. Sandra states that, when investing in merchandise, these articles are very expensive, often enough for one or two boxes of materials.
