Maria's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy materials to refurbish her business facility.
María is 31 years old. She lives with Percy who is 34 years old and they have two children. They live in their own house located in the district of Pichari. María works selling drinks. She prepares fruit drinks and is almost the only one who sells this type of drinks. Usually she works with the help of her husband. Before she worked in this business she sold alcoholic beverages but left it because she had customers lacking in respect, and it was all this that influenced María to take the decision to make a change in her business. María is so happy with this business because it generates a good income thanks to good preparation, cleanliness, and the strategic place where it is located. In the future she is thinking of opening a soda fountain with the idea of bettering her economical status as she sees it as a good opportunity to gain a good number of clients. This is her second loan through MFP and she promises to make her payments on time. María is the treasurer of the community bank and she is grateful for the trust. With the 3,000 soles she will invest in improving her business facility.
