A loan helped to purchase more medicines to stock her pharmacy.

Rocio's story

Rocío is 35 years old and is married to Yuri, 30. They have two children and live in their own home in the Pichari district.

Rocío is a hard-working woman. Before she had her pharmacy, she offered her medicines from door to door, traveling from one town to another. She cared for many patients since doctors did not come to those areas. That is how she saw that selling medicine was a good option. She already had a client base, giving her an advantage in sales. In general, her husband helps her with the business, but she also receives help from her parents.

In the future, she hopes to expand to her pharmacy in order to prevent many of the diseases that affect her customers. For this reason, Rocío visited MPF to ask for her second loan. She promises to be very punctual with her payments. With the 2000 soles she requested, she will purchase more medicines to stock her pharmacy.
