Angela's story

Ángela, 53, is married to Juan, 49. They have three children: Bruno, 28, Rafael, 26, and Maribel, 24. They live together as a family in their own house located in Playa Hermosa-San Ramón (Peruvian central jungle).

This dedicated woman’s main economic activity is farming. She farms various citrus crops. She’s been doing this for over 20 years. Throughout this time she was able to invest her profits well. For example, she bought a mototaxi (motorcycle with seats that is used to transport people). She says that providing urban public transport is the activity she’s now engaged in.

She also opened a grocery store in a space she set up in her house for this. She sells basic need items like: sugar, rice, milk, bread, snacks, etc.
Because of everything she’s been accomplishing, Ángela is thinking of acquiring a new motorcycle with which to supply other transportation routes in her location.

This is her 10th loan with MFP. As a longstanding member of her communal bank she feels proud of the accomplishments it’s been attaining.

She will use the requested loan to stock her store with foodstuffs, with products pertaining to Christmas and New Year and, if the loan stretches far enough, she’ll buy several sacks of manure.
