Feliciana's story

Feliciana is 46 years old, and is a very hardworking and loving mother. She lives in a rented house together with her two children: Isabel who is 27 and Marleny who is 14 years old. Her business is selling candies, and her place is one of the busiest, since it is well-stocked and the people know that they will find what they are looking for there: sweets, lollipops, cookies, sodas, and chocolate. This has maD. her business be very profitable and full.

What she likes most about her job is to converse with her neighboring saleswomen, since it makes their long work schedules more pleasant. She has been doing this job for four years and what she considers the most difficult is to have to remain all day in her sales location without leaving it. With time, she longs to rent a store in the same region, where she can offer better service to her customers.

This is the sixth loan that Feliciana has had access to with MFP. She knows that this money will help her improve her future, but also she has to bear in mind that she has to pay it on time so that she doesn't have problems with her community bank. With the 1000 soles requested, she will buy more candies in order to improve her salesplace.
