Ibis's story

Ibis, 26, is a young, kind, cheerful mother. She lives in her in-laws’ house with her husband Dennis, 26, and their two beloved children: Sanly, 6 and Andrea, 3 that she wants to provide a better quality of life for.

For Ibis, selling beverages is a very profitable business because she has a store where she sells beer, soft drinks and mineral water and due to the city of Pucallpa’s heavy commercial activity she always sells much. She is a very cheerful person and always makes her sales with a great smile. She’s been in business four years and the most difficult part of it is having to walk all day seeking out customers. In the future she’d like to have a store where she can sell everything and not limit herself to beverages. What she enjoys the most is chatting with her customers because she can find out about what’s going on in the neighborhood from them.

This will be her third loan with MFP. She has been very punctual with her first installment and expects to be so again now. She is very cheerful in her communal bank and always gives advice to the other members. She will use the requested 800 new soles to buy more beer and soft drinks to stock her business.
