Natividad's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy non-perishables and candy.
Natividad, 39, is a good and kind woman. She is married and has 2 children, who are the motivation for her efforts and hard work. They are: Nora, who is 16, and Tedy, who is 6. They all live together in the house she owns with her husband Eduardo, who is 50. What Natividad wants the most is to be able to provide a better quality of life for her family, and so she works very hard to achieve this. Natividad works selling food and candy. Every evening, she goes out to the sidewalk in front of her house and awaits her customers, so that she can meet their needs. In the mornings, she goes to the entrance of a school in her city to offer candy for sale to the students. She has been doing this work for more than 28 years. Her mother passed down knowledge to her about how to cook and make good sales. Natividad likes her work very much, because it allows her to have time for her family and have a good income so that she can contribute to the finances of the household. She hopes to continue to work so that she can make progress and get ahead with her family. She has a lot of plans, but at this moment she is working on expanding her business. This will be her 16th loan with MFP, and so she awaits your support so that she can continue to pursue her goals. On her part, she promises to make her payments on time, as she has done with the previous loans that she took. In addition, she feels very comfortable working with her communal bank, since the members are good and responsible people. With the sum of 2,000 Peruvian soles that she requests, she will buy ingredients, non-perishable food items, and candy for her sales post so that she can offer a greater variety of products to her customers.
