Decio's story

Decio, age 32, is a very friendly and good woman. She is single and has no children. Every day she dreams about getting ahead and being able to provide everything necessary for a good quality of life to her parents, with whom she lives in their own house. Decio's work consists of various activities. She has a grocery store where she sells basic daily necessities. In the same place, she operates a disco bar, where she offers her clients good music, cold drinks and cocktails. On weekends in the evening, she sells food at his home. At the same time, she also offers haircuts and hairstyling services to her customers. She does all of these activities alone and in a very well-equipped space in her home. She has worked with great tenacity for five years. She has many plans in mind, but at present all she wants is to maintain her businesses. This will be her fifth loan with MFP, and she is very happy to know that they will once again place confidence in her so she can increase her working capital. She is very committed to making her payments, just as she paid off her previous loans. She is very happy to belong to her communal bank, since all of the members are very good and show solidarity. With the amount she has requested, 2500 Peruvian soles, she will buy beverages to broaden the variety of products she offers, and she will also buy basic staple goods for her store, as well as materials for her hair salon and ingredients to continue preparing food.
