A loan of $375 helped to buy more clothes.

Feliciana's story

Feliciana is 42 years old and lives with her partner, 47 year-old Roberto. They have two children: 22 year-old Jonatan and 7 year-old Yeison. The family live in their own home in the village of Canayre, in Llochegua district. Feliciana has always been restless since she was a little girl; she never liked sitting around not doing anything. When the opportunity presented itself, she would help her parents with their household chores.

For 25 years now, Feliciana has been selling clothes to the general public. She recalls that her first year was difficult, in her second year she started to get things on an even keel and from then on she was very blessed because her sales increased. In general, she works on her own but she sometimes receives help from her family. In the future, she hopes to expand her store with the goal of positioning herself in the market.

This will be Feliciana's first loan from MFP and she pledges to be punctual in making her repayments. She would like to use the 1,000 Peruvian soles to buy more clothes.
