Sara
Sandra, 32, is a hardworking woman and puts a lot of effort into getting ahead in life. She lives with Leonidas, who works as a driver. They have three children, who are 11, 8 and 3 years old and she loves them very much. They live in their own house.

Sandra makes and sells sweets and a traditional beverage called “masato”, which is prepared with cassava. She learned how to make the sweets thanks to her uncle. She makes cakes, ring-shaped pastry, bread and other things that she sells in the neighboring streets. Her uncle helps her to cook and pack the sweets.

She started this business more than six months ago. She has also been selling beauty products that she buys from catalogues for eight years. She thinks her business is profitable, because of the profits it leaves.

She likes her line of work because she has an income source that helps her support her kids and a job, considering she could not finish her studies and found it difficult to find one. Conscious of these difficulties and the economic needs she had, she decided to start her own business. She sees now that she can have a finished product that is sold quickly, and she can see the profits more easily.

She is planning to open a soda fountain. This is her third loan with MFP. She feels happy knowing that she will have financial support, which makes her feel confident about her business. She enjoys being part of her communal bank and she thinks it is a group where people are caring and close to each other.

With the requested amount, 1000 nuevos soles [PEN], she will buy ingredients for her sweets, such as sugar, different kinds of oil, flour, starch, butter. She will buy these supplies in bulk in order to have a better profit margin.
