Olga's story

Olga is a loving mother who is 32 years old. She lives in the house she inherited from her parents together with her 3 children: Liliana, age 8, Jean, age 6 and Adolfo who is 5 years old, to whom she wants to give good educations. Olga has a small store in her neighborhood, which is very popular with her customers as she is a very happy and charismatic saleswoman who always provides them with cordial service. Olga likes to speak with her customers and find out what is happening in the neighborhood. She has been involved in this activity for 2 years and in the future hopes to turn her business into one of the biggest to be able to improve her earnings. What she likes least about her work is that she has to remain in her store all day long and is not able to go out to do other activities. She knows that the path to her goals is very long and will require sacrifice, but Olga is prepared to confront it with the only goal of providing a better life for her children. This is her fourth loan with MFP and just like she did with her first loans she wishes to make her payments on time as she knows that if she does not do it she will have problems with her communal bank where she is respected for how responsible she is. With the two thousand five hundred nuevos soles requested she will buy more products to increase the amount of merchandise that she has in her store. .
