A loan of $1,100 helped to buy sand and buckets of paint.


Elisabet's story

Elisabet, 24, has lived in Huancayo for the past 10 years with her husband and little son. A year ago she decided that her best option for earning an income was to have her own hardware business in a rented stall where she also lives, and together with her husband, they deal with the customers. Her husband gets supplies of new merchandise since there is always a rotation of working capital. Now prices of many of the products that they sell are stable. In the short time that they have had their business sales have been increasing with the new products that they have decided to sell, like sand, and river stones that are necessary for house contstruction. A personal invitation was extended to them to request financing and help with their cash problems since their business always requires an amount of money to replenish their merchandise and improve it. This is the first loan with MFP and she feels more relaxed to have found a source of trustworthy financing and assistance to succeed with her financial goals. That is why Elisabet is hoping that each one of you will help her with her plans. She will use this money to buy more buckets of paint and sand wholesale.
