A loan of $1,100 helped to buy more plastic products.


Cenobia's story

Cenobia is 66 years old. She is married to Miguel, aged 66, with whom she has six children. They live together in their own house, which is located in the district of Pichari.

Cenobia is a responsible and hard-working woman, characteristics that she inherited from her parents. The business she works in is selling products maD. from plastic, such as disposable plates, buckets, bags of every size, and tubs. At the beginning, things didn't go too well with this business and she didn't have many customers. However, bit by bit, she managed to gain them. Today she is very well-known and always sells out of her products. She doesn't work alone in this, as her husband and children help her with service and sales.

In the near future, she wants to grow her store to show more products. This is her second loan with MFP, and she again makes her promise to pay punctually. With the 3,000 Soles she is asking for, she will buy more products for stocking up her store.
