A loan helped to buy more fish wholesale.


Aleyda's story

Aleyda is 33 years old. She is a very kind and sincere woman who lives in her own home together with her husband, 34 year-old Mario, and her four beloved children who she would like to provide with a better quality of life.

Aleyda's work is buying and selling fish. She does not sell from a fixed sales location but rather delivers her products to her customers who buy from her at very reasonable prices. Aleyda works hard to ensure the fish she sells is as fresh as possible. She goes to the fish market very early to buy her fresh fish. She considers herself to be a very cheerful saleswoman who is very helpful to her customers. This has given her an advantage in her sales business. She has been in this business for 14 years but the smell still bothers her as it pervades everything. However, she knows that it is part of this work. In the future, Aleyda would like to own a refrigerator where she can store and sell fish without having to worry about it going off in the heat of the sun.

This will be Aleyda's twelfth loan from MFP and she hopes to make all her repayments on time. She is a very well-liked member of her community bank because of the cheerfulness that she brings to the group. She will use the 1,500 Peruvian soles she has requested to buy more fish since she has experienced more demand recently.
