Nelly's story

Nelly is 39 years old, and has always been concerned for the well-being of her loved ones, especially her husband and their 3 kids. Her kids live with her in the home that was very difficult for her to acquire. Since she was young, Nelly had a plan to have a bazaar, where she could set up a small shop to help those without money who cannot visit hospitals. Nelly has a background in pharmacy, and therefore feels responsible to contribute to her town. And so, she opened her business 6 years ago, which is available to all clients from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m., and, seeing as the business is located inside her house, she can serve her clients without neglecting her children. If this were not the arrangement, Nelly would not be able to enjoy the company of her children, who also help her attend to clients when she needs to leave the house. Even though the business is going well, Nelly stills thinks about the future, and she has a goal to increase her business this year by adding a small library. Nelly found out about MFP 5 years ago, and this is already her 10th loan. The 2000 Soles she requests will be a great help to Nelly, who plans to re-stock her business with new goods, and with the most popular goods.
