Karina's story

Karina, 25, lives with Wilbert, 25, and together they have one child. They live together in their home, located in the Llochegua district. Karina is an enterprising youth who, from the time that she was a child, worked very hard, in multiple businesses at the side of her mother. Over time, she and her mother decided to have their own businesses; her mother sells groceries while Karina decided to open a restaurant. At first, it was in a small rented space where she did not have much furniture and her sales were not very profitable. But gradually she's been improving her restaurant and attracting more customers, due to the good taste of her dishes. In the future, she wants to be a very successful person with a profitable business and a big customer base. To do this, she will take her first loan with MFP, and she pledges to be punctual in making her payments. With the 3,000 Peruvian soles, she will invest in improvements to her restaurant.
