A loan of $1,025 helped to purchase vegetables to sell.


Epifania's story

Epifania is a hard working 21-year-old who lives in her own house next to her family in the Ventanilla district in Lima. She sells fruits at a stand in the “12 D. Mayo” market in her village, one of the more well-known markets. As a result Epifania has many customers, but also because of the good treatment that she gives to her regulars, who she treats more like old friends. In addition, she offers good prices and high-quality products. Her business is becoming increasingly profitable because she is working very hard to achieve all of her goals, as she knows that her progress is based on her effort and dedication. This is her tenth loan with her solidarity group from MFP. Her group members have always been very punctual and strict about making their payments on time and they have promised the same with this credit. With her loan she will purchase the best quality vegetables in order to increase her sales.
