A loan of $725 helped to finish construction on the floor of the room that she will rent.


Ana's story

Ana is 47 years old and lives with her 56 year-old husband, Victor, and her 17 year-old daughter, Yobana, in a home that they managed to buy with a lot of effort. She makes a living by renting rooms that she has available in her house to people that come from other places, primarily from the provinces to find work opportunities or to study in Lima. She has done this for 5 years and it has been profitable. Currently, she is in charge of managing her business’s income. She is using this income to build additional rooms to rent in the future. Ana is happy with her work, and she is very comfortable with it even though many times she has had bad tenants that have damaged the infrastructure and managed to leave without paying for the damages. For this reason, she is trying to be more careful. This is her first credit with MFP and she promises to be punctual with all of her payments. With the credit that she is requesting, she will finish construction on the floor of the room that she will rent out next.
