Trinidad's story

Trinidad, 39, is a very hard-working and happy woman. She lives in her sister's home with her three beloved children. She most desires to improve their quality of life. She cooks delicious food for her neighbours; her business is food sales, and she sells in a small restaurant that she has opened in her village. Thanks to the rich food, her restaurant is very popular and her patrons always leave with full stomachs and happy hearts. What she most likes about her job is the cooking, since she is very good at it. She has been doing this for three years, and finds that the most difficult part is tending to her customers alone. With time, she wants to improve the facilities of her restaurant, in order to offer her customers better convenience.
This is her fifth loan with MFP, and as she has with all her previous loans, she wants to repay it on time and without difficulty. In her community group she is very respected, since she is the most active and engaged member. With the 2000 soles she is requesting, she will buy more cutlery and plates, and she will also invest in new tables.
