Antonia's story

Antonia is 35 years old. She is a happy and hardworking woman. She lives in a rented house with her 3 children, Evelin who is 8 years old, Maycol, 5, and Tatiana who is 2. Her children are the motivation for all her effort. Antonia's grocery store is one of the most busy in her neighborhood. Her great charisma and kindness have made her the favorite of her neighbors, who do not hesitate in doing their shopping since very early because they know hers is the first store to open.

What she likes best about her work is chatting with her neighbors about the things that happen in the neighborhood. She has been working on this for 4 years and thinks that the hardest thing is having to be all day long inside her store, since she has to tend to it continuously if she doesn't want her sales to decrease. In the future, she hopes her business grows and becomes the main grocery store in her neighborhood.

This is Antonia's fifth loan with MFP. She knows that if she pays it on time she will have access to another one with more ease and without bringing complications to her communal bank where she is well loved by the rest of her partners. With the two thousand and five hundred soles requested she will buy more provisions for her grocery store and in that way increase her stock of products.
