Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth, 25, is a cheerful young woman who lives in her own home with her husband, Edgar, 37. What she most desires is to get ahead in life. Although still very young, she realizes that she must work if she wants to provide her family with a good life. This is why she and her husband decided to open two businesses at once. From very early in the day she tends to her Internet access booths and in the evenings she sells hamburgers and salchipapas (sausages and fried potatoes). What she most enjoys about her work is preparing the delicious meals she sells at night. She has been in this line of work for 2 years and considers the most difficult part of it to be tending to the Internet access booths because she doesn't know much about computers and can't help the customers if they encounter any problems. For later on, she expects to improve her small eatery to offer her customers improved customer service. This is Elizabeth's 7th loan with MFP and she is determined to save a little every day so that she can make her repayments on time. With the 3000 soles requested she will buy tables and chairs to better equip the area where she sells food.
