A loan of $550 helped to buy tables and chairs.

Lis's story

Lis is 31 years old and a very straightforward and hard-working woman. She lives in her parents' home together with her husband Raúl, age 36, and her beloved daughter Tiffany, age 10. She would like to provide her family with a better quality of life. The food stand Lis operates is always full of people who come in a steady stream to enjoy the dishes she prepares. This happens thanks to the excellent location of her establishment, and also because the prices she offers her customers are very affordable, which is the main attraction of her food stand. What she likes most about her work is cooking and seeing how people enjoy the good flavor of her food. She has done this work for 4 years, and the hardest part for her is waiting on all of her customers and keeping them satisfied. She hopes that in the future her food stand will grow. She knows that in order to achieve her goals she needs to work very hard, and she is ready to do so. This is her fourth loan with MFP, and just as with her earlier loans, she is determined to make all of her payments on time. Among the members of her communal bank, she is very well-liked and respected because of the responsibility she demonstrates. With the 1500 Peruvian new soles she is requesting, she will buy more tables and chairs to improve the service at her food stand.
