A loan of $700 helped diversify her inventory.

Ysabel's story

Ysabel is married and the mother of two young children who require her supervision. For this reason, both she and her husband try to provide them the necessary comforts both inside and away from home. Ysabel has always worked from a young age and started selling tanks of gas one year ago. She started this business with the help of her husband, who set aside space in their home so that she could manage it. Ysabel tends to her customers with great pleasure by providing home installation services. Working alone has its limits, so she relies on the assistance of her siblings and her children to help run the business. However, in order to increase her sales, she needs an appropriate business location where she can exhibit her merchandise. She would also like to sell different well-known brands of gas, but she needs to negotiate with different suppliers so that she can acquire their products.

This is Ysabel’s 13th loan with MFP. What she likes most about her Communal Bank is the responsibility and commitment of all the members. She will use her loan of 2000 soles to diversify her inventory so that she can offer different brands of gas.
