Edith
Edith is a 28-year-old young woman. She is a hardworking and responsible single mother, and faces the world with courage and strength for the wellbeing of her only child, who is nine years old. She lives in her mother's house, along with her sister and her son. She works a lot day after day to be able to provide her boy with the best.

Edith's work consists of the retail sale of basic products, including rice, sugar, milk, bread, eggs, oil, vegetables, and more. She runs this business in her house, where she works full-time every day. She has been in this line of work for 11 years.

In the beginning, she had her mother's help, but now the business is all hers. She sometimes gets help from her sister when she has business to take care of away from home. What she likes about her work is that she has time to deal with other issues that crop up. Fortunately, it's going very well since she always has customers due to the variety of products she sells and because hers is the only shop in the neighborhood.

Edith hopes to continue developing and growing her business. This is her fifth loan with MFP, and she is very grateful for the credit opportunity that they provide and for the financial support that she needs to carry on. She promises to pay her monthly payments in a timely manner and to continue working responsibly with the members of her communal bank. With the requested amount of 2,500 soles (PEN), she will buy merchandise to sell in her shop, including snacks, rice, sugar, bread, eggs, milk, oil, vegetables, and more.
