A loan of $450 helped tables and restaurant supplies.

Ana's story

Ana is 27 years old and lives with her husband Jarol, who is a chef. They have 2 small children, Jarol and Luana, and live in their own home. They have both worked in the food business for the past 11 years. They have a restaurant that they manage and work in together. Sometimes Ana’s mother helps too, which makes the business even more productive. They like working in the restaurant because they make good food and enjoy seeing the satisfaction on their customers’ faces. The majority of their customers leave feeling content after having enjoyed one of the delicious meals that they prepare. But they also have to sacrifice a lot for their jobs and usually finish working very late at night. Happily, they are very united and hope to earn a good enough salary to pay for their children’s educations. In the future they would like to open a restaurant chain in order to enjoy more economic stability. This is Ana’s 3rd loan with MFP and she has always been on time with her payments. With this loan she will buy more tables to expand her restaurant. She will also make improvements to the outside of the restaurant and purchase some kitchen utensils.
