Sofia
Sofía is from Chupaca. She is a widow, and currently lives with her two children in her own house that she inherited from her parents. She began her grocery store business two years ago.

She previously had a restaurant in the central area of the city, which she closed because it wasn't generating profits. For this reason she began to devote all her energies to the store she set up in her own home, where she sells basic household products, as well as soft drinks. She put in a table with chairs so that her customers can have their soft drinks in greater comfort.

She is happy, as her children help her run the store, and also learn each day how to serve customers properly. Her business is gradually improving, and she realized that it is necessary to run it properly. She will not rest until she sees her store better equipped, and in the future also selling meals. "Everything little by little--the important thing is the desire to move forward," she comments.

She belongs to the "Cristo Rey” communal bank, and this is her second loan with MFP, where she feels empowered, as she is getting help to make progress with her business. This is why she promises to make her installment payments on time. She also likes working in her group, as they are responsible and supportive people.

When she receives her loan, Sofía will use the money to buy more merchandise: basic household necessities for her grocery store.
