A loan of $700 helped to buy cheese.


Rufina's story

Rufina, 23, is a mature and aware daughter; she lives with her parents and her greatest wish is to provide them with a tranquil old-age. She sells cheeses door-to-door. She is a very convincing salesperson so she has several regular customers who always buy her delicious cheeses. What she likes most about her work is to go from place to place and hear how her products are praised by her customers. She has been in this line of work for two years and considers the most difficult part of it having to walk all day under the relentless sun. Even so, she knows that this is her work and she has to do it. In time, she would like to have a store from which to sell her products more comfortably.

This is Rufina's 5th loan with MFP. She wants to repay on time because she wants to be able to have access to loans in the future. She is a very active member of her communal bank; she is always concerned for the well-being of her fellow members. She will use the requested 2000 new soles to buy more cheeses because demand for them has increased lately.
