A loan of $750 helped to buy cooking utensils and some furniture.


Edelfonza's story

Edelfonza, age 46, is in a common-law marriage with Marino, age 50. They have four children and live in their own home in the District of Pichari. Edelfonza is a patient woman with an easy-going attitude. She started selling food from her location, but all was not rosy since she lacked sufficient capital to attract potential customers like she is able to do now. Edelfonza utilized marketing and sales techniques to achieve everything she has accomplished to this point. She offers a quality product at a low price. Another feature of her restaurant is the friendly and accommodating service that is offered to every customer. As a result, Edelfonza’s restaurant has received more recognition and is frequently visited by her customers.

This is her second loan with MFP and she promises once again to submit her payments on time. With this loan of 2000 PEN, Edelfonza will buy cooking utensils and some furniture. She is happy to be part of her Communal Bank since all of its members are entrepreneurs. The money from this loan will be used to purchase cooking utensils and furniture.
