Gaby's story

Gaby, 30 years-old, is a hardworking woman in addition to being enthusiastic and kind. She is separated and lives with her mother, father, and two children who are 10 and 8 years-old whom she loves very much and who are comfortably settled into her parent's home.

The activity that Gaby performs is confectionery, cake preparation, and making pies and cakes. Due to this she set up her business in her parent's home, a trade she learned in a training center in Lima. Like this she began with her own capital, taking orders, buffets, birthdays, girls' 15th birthdays, and other activities, and having very good success due to the quality of her products and winning her client's preference. She has had this business for seven years.

She also has the provisional help of five people in making and taking orders whom she pays daily for their work. What she likes about her activity is having a financial income to pay the household expenses, her children's education, and even managing to buy some electronic household devices. Seeing the good reception, she plans to expand and grow her business.

This will be the third loan with the MFP institution. She is thankful for the opportunity to rely on a line of credit to advance her business. For this reason she is committed to fulfilling the payments of her installments in order to have a good credit record and have access to more credit. Additionally she says that she feels good about her communal bank because she considers them to be good people. WIth the amount of 2000 PEN, she will invest in pastry accessories, such as acrylic layers and individual molds that are in demand for 15th birthdays and other events.

With the requested total of 2000 nuevos soles, she will invest in buying a lot of confectionery accessories like acrylic layers, individual molds that are fashionable for girls' 15th birthdays, and other things.
