Ruth's story

Ruth is a native of the city of Santa Rosa. She is 39 years old and lives with Melitón, aged 40, and their two children who are the fruit of their relationship. Omar is 15 years old and Devi is 13. They live together in their own home, where harmony prevails. Ruth is a primary school teacher and strives everyday to give something back to her students. She works in the educational center of Santa Rosa. She is a teacher who is much loved by students and parents. Ruth gives herself completely to her work, and thanks to her daily efforts, they have been able to build their house on a base of reinforced concrete. At the same time, she bought her farm; this is where she goes on days she's not working, so as to give the farm every care. She likes her job as a teacher and keeps an eye out for her students; they are grateful to her for her patience and treatment of them. With the requested loan, she will buy tiles to improve the floors of her accommodation. Her future looks promising, she hopes to be hired again by the Peruvian government since she depends on that to continue providing her services as a teacher. This will be her ninth loan through MFP, and therefore she hopes for your support to improve her home environment. She is a very cooperative member of her community bank. With the support of the loan, she will be able to buy tiles to cover the floors of her home.
