A loan of $750 helped to purchase products to supply her grocery store.

Adripina's story

Adripina is 56 years old and she lives with her common-law husband Alejo, with whom she has 1 child. They live in a house of their own located in the community of Teresa in the district of Pichari. Adripina is perseverant and hardworking but when she was young her parents asked her to only attend to her studies. With the passage of time she noticed the lack of financial resources and this pushed her to make a decision to have her own business. Since then she has had a grocery store. She has been in business for 4 years and to date it has done very well. Additionally, she also cultivates cocoa but in small plots of land. Generally she works alone but at times she receives help from her husband who takes charge of selling the harvest in the central market of their community. IN the future she hopes to purchase farm land where to cultivate different products and in large quantities. This is her second loan with MFP (Kiva Field Partner) and Adripina is once again committed to making her payments. Adripina is happy with the members of her communal group because they are punctual. With the 2000 soles that she requests will purchase various products to supply her store.
