A loan of $675 helped to buy drinks and ice cream to sustain her business.

Isabel's story

Isabel sells ice cream and soft drinks, buying wholesale quantities and selling them retail from her home. She has been selling these products for 4 years, and is pleased to see the business grow with daily profits. She does not require much help to carry out these sales, but occasionally her husband or daughter assist her. Her business is not demanding, and allows her to focus on other activities as well such as promoting "Piet" educational materials. She is confident in the future of her sales and very content with her situation at present. This will be Isabel's tenth loan with MFP, and she feels very comfortable working with her colleagues there. With a loan of 1800 soles, Isabel will buy additional stock of soft drinks and ice cream for re-sale.
