Gina's story

Gina, 27 years old, is happily married to Elmore, 29 years old, with whom she has 2 beautiful children that are her reason for living. They live in their own home. Very proudly, she tells us that they require little to finish constructing their home, thanks to her and her husband’s shared effort. She works in pastry making, which has developed to be an economic support. Thus she prepares cakes, pies, cookies, and sweets, according to the orders that she makes. She really enjoys this work, mixing and forming her delicious desserts that are tasty to the majority of her customers. Along with this job, she also raises farmyard birds. As for her husband, he works in a private company in Lima and is responsible for the major costs of their house. In the future, he has plans to install booths and offer internet services, which they consider to be very profitable. This is her sixth loan with MFP, and she is very satisfied and proud to work with her communal group, because she already knows the working methodology that her group uses. This businesswoman, with the money that she requests, will buy consumables necessary to make cakes and cookies.
