Leysi
Leysi is 45 years old. She is a very hard-working woman who is determined to make progress. She is widowed from the father of her three children and currently lives with her youngest daughter, 17-year-old Maria, in her own home which she built with the help of her late husband.

Leysi's business is selling groceries, basic household products, candies and soda. She has a grocery store in her home where she serves her customers in a very friendly manner. Most of her customers are neighbors and she has known how to gain their loyalty through the friendly manner in which she serves them. She started her business more than a year ago, with her own capital. Up to now, she has worked with the support of her daughter. She considers her business to be quite profitable because her products are household staples and they sell every day. In the past she had problems because her household finances fell when her husband passed away. For that reason, she had to start making her own income in order to cover her household expenses.

This is Leysi's second loan from MFP and she is happy to know that she has financial support for making progress in her business. She feels comfortable belonging to her community bank because of the support and solidarity she receives from her fellow members.

Leysi will use the 1,500 soles she has requested to invest in buying general groceries, candies and soda to stock her store. This will give her a varied stock to sell.
