Rocio
Rocío, age 23, is a happy and very hard-working young woman. She is in a common-law-marriage, and she lives with her life partner in her mother-in-law’s house. She has two children, ages three and one and a half. They are her motivation for getting ahead.

She works in her grocery store. She has a small grocery store. She buys wholesale in order to be able to sell for retail and get income that way. She works at home. She has been in this business for three years. She works alone because he life partner works at a saw mill. That way they both generate the income needed for their household.

This work is going so-so for Rocío. She is maintaining her grocery store; she still needs a lot of things in order for it to be stocked. What she likes about her grocery store is that there is always action. What she does not like is that there are people who come with the desire to ask for credit. They are the ones who are late in paying, and they weaken her business. Later she hopes to be able to have a store that is stocked like she always had. That way she will have more income.

This is the sixth loan that Rocío has had with the MFP institution. Her mind is at ease in the group because they are all considered to be good. She is very grateful for the opportunity that MFP gives her in order to be able to invest and generate income for her household. She will use the requested 2,000 soles to buy groceries and ornamental trim for clothing for her business. That way she will be able to grow together with her business.
