Doyliveth's story

46-year-old Doylibeth is a determined and committed woman. She is also cheerful and kind to others. She is married to Javier who is a teacher and the father of her children: 22-year-old Luis, 18-year-old Marvin and 8-year-old Karen. They live comfortably together in their own home that Doylibeth bought with the support of her husband. Doylibeth's business is making and knitting clothing, tablecloths and bedspreads. She learned this skill from her grandmother when she was very young. She makes her items at home and sells them to her friends and family members, providing them with good customer service and thereby gaining their loyalty. She also sells clothing, that her daughter sends her from the capital, at affordable prices. Up to now she has been working alone but her children sometimes support her in collecting payment for her items. She considers her business to be fairly profitable owing to the demand that she has for her products and the speed of her capital turnover. This allows her to see her profits very quickly. She decided to start her business because she needed an income to cover her expenses and pay for her children's education as her husband's salary wasn't enough to meet their increasing expenses. Seeing the good results that she has experienced, she would now like to start another business, opening a grocery store in her home. This will be Doylibeth's fifth loan from MFP. She hopes to receive a small loan so that she can achieve her goals. She enjoys belonging to her community bank because all the members are responsible and very supportive people. She will invest the 1,800 soles she has requested in buying clothing to sell. She will buy at low prices because she will buy in bulk. She will also buy materials with which to repair to house, creating an environment in which she can set up her grocery store.
