Grassi's story

Grassi, age 40, is a friendly and hardworking woman. She lives in her own home with her four beloved children for whom she wants to provide a better quality of life. Grassi’s food stand is the busiest in her neighborhood within the city of Pucallpa. Every day her customers gather at her stand to enjoy the delicious dishes she prepares. She is a skilled cooked who learned her trade at a young age by watching her mother prepare food. Now she is happy to be performing this type of work. What she enjoys most about her job is cooking with great care. Grassi has been in business for four years and considers the most difficult part to be attending to all of her customers when her food stand is busy. Within a few months, she hopes to improve the infrastructure of her food stand so that she can serve more customers.

This will be her twelfth loan with MFP. Grassi hopes to gain everyone’s support. She is a very active participant within her Communal Bank. The loan of 2000 PEN what she is requesting will be used to buy new pots and utensils since the equipment she currently uses is deteriorating.
