Charita's story

Charita, 38 years old, is a very kind and hard-working woman, who lives in her own house with her 2 minor children, Rutger, aged 16, and Alith, 14, to whom she wishes to offer a better quality of life. Charita's business is selling beer, soft drinks, and water. Her store is located in her own house. Thus, every weekend, she attempts to renew and restock her merchandise. Charita is a very happy and charismatic vendor, and her customers prefer her to the competition.

What Charita likes best about her work is conversing with her customers; it makes her long days less tiresome. She has had her business for 4 years and what she finds most difficult is transporting the cases of beer to her store. Charita's goal is to have a better store where she can develop as a merchant, and be able to offer better service to her customers.

This will be Charita's 2nd loan through MFP, and she hopes for the help of each one of you to establish her business. With the 3,000 new sols requested, she will buy more cases of beer, since during the present epoch, demand increases.
