Dona
Dona is 49 years old. She is a hardworking and determined woman with a great drive to get ahead. Her partner is Ricardo, who is a welder and the father of her two children, 13-year-old Carlis and 9-year-old Kevin. They all live together in the house they bought with the return on several years' savings.

She sells soft drinks and essential grocery items for a living. She has a spacious area in which to do this where she set up her store in her own home and where she also has a refrigerator and a freezer to keep her beverages ice-cold. She started out over ten years ago with her own capital by buying in small quantities, which she gradually increased after seeing the demand for her products. She thinks her business is pretty profitable based on the earnings she makes, as she has been able to maintain a good level of demand and she is well-known in the area. Before starting this business, she had financial problems, as her expenses went up after she had her children. She wants to offer them a better quality of life and a good education so they can achieve personal fulfillment, and she also wants to help her partner out with the household expenses.

This will be her tenth loan with MFP and she hopes to continue to pursue her objectives. She also likes the work she has been doing in her communal bank supporting people as they make progress with their businesses.

She will use the requested 3,000 nuevos soles to buy soft drinks and groceries to increase her store's inventory.
