Teodora's story

Teodora, 45, is a hard working, noble mother. She lives in her own house with her husband and two children. Her business is selling fish. Very early in the morning every day and on weekends she and her husband sell ceviche (marinated fish). They do quite well with the business.

Since her son works at the municipal fish gathering center when he gets off work he buys fresh fish and takes it home where Teodora prepares this very typical Peruvian dish. She has managed to win over many customers who prefer her due to the service she provides.

What she enjoys most about her work is chatting with her customers. She has been in business for 15 years and considers the most painful thing to face as a mother is being unable to rehabilitate her son from a paralysis he has in half his body. For this reason she hopes to soon finish building her house to offer him a better quality of life.

This is her 13th loan with MFP; she’s aware that she has to repay punctually and is willing to do so; she is a very cheerful, responsible member of her communal bank.

She wants the loan to buy building materials and supplies like: cement and fine sand because she wants to have the floor in the house in very good condition.
