A loan of $550 helped to buy kitchen utensils.

Monica's story

Mónica, 30, lives with Alberto, 35, with whom she has two children. They all live together in their own house located in Sivia District.

When Mónica was 25 years old she opened a small restaurant where she’d sell various dishes according to her customers’ wishes. They had this business for about two years and were able to gather capital together to start a new business. At present, she sells grilled chicken, a business she’s doing well in thanks to her tasty preparation which is an advantage for her to attract more customers.

At the beginning, it wasn’t furnished very well but she gradually bought what she needed and decorated the environment. Today, she is super happy with this business thanks to the recommendations of her customers who gave her the idea to start this business.

This will be her first MFP loan so she commits to make her installment payments punctually. She will use the 1500 soles to buy the kitchen utensils she so very much needs.
