Dolivet's story

Dolivet, 38 years old, lives with her husband, Pedro, and her two young children in her own home. During the day, she works in her neighbor's house taking care of their children,a dn in the afternoon, she works selling "salchipollos," which are pre-prepared instant meals made of potatoes and pieces of fried chicken. She also sells soft drinks to go with the food, and as she often works in the shop until midnight, she manages to earn a decent wage from this work. While Dolivet takes care of the children during the day, her sister helps her with her business, as it is located in the doorway of their mother's home. It is a perfect space for this type of establishment, where many people can mingle together.

In order to improve her business, Dolivet is thinking of installing a juicer to gain more profit. This is her 18th loan with MFP, for which she is agan committed to being punctual with her repayment schedule. She believes that this loan will be very useful in the progress of her business. Dolivet has plans to invest the capital requested in the purchase of different types of wood and roofing materials to enclose the business property; she also wishes to change the awning that covers the door, and in this way, she hopes to offer better service to her customers.
