A loan of $350 helped capital investment in her restaurant.

Nancy's story

Nancy, 34, is a very hard-working and responsible woman. She lives in the house of her parents, whom she wants to give a good old age. Work has always been a very respectable activity for Nancy and because of this she works without complex serving in a restaurant, which is always very crowded being one of the best-known restaurants in the city of Juliaca.

Her work consists of attending to clients and serving and collecting payment from them, activities which she does very well and with much kindness. For this reason, she is one of the most efficient employees of the restaurant. She has been doing this kind of work for 4 years and most enjoys making conversation with her clients. She finds the hardest thing is attending to so many people at the same time, and this makes her very tired.

This is the second loan for Nancy with MFP and she expects to be able to pay it back on time, as she doesn't want to cause problems for the other members of the communal bank, where she is well-liked and respected. With the 1,000 soles requested, she plans to increase her savings to subsequently set up a restaurant.
