A loan of $750 helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.


Dina's story

Dina, 36, is a good, kind and hardworking woman. She lives with her spouse and their four children who are 19, 16, 6 and 3 years old and still dependent on her and her spouse to have food and a good education. They live in their own house where she works daily to be able to provide her children with a better quality of life. Dina’s work consists in selling groceries. She has a store where she stocks a little of everything for her customers who come by seeking good service and affordable prices. She has a space at home set up for this and she’s been in operation three years. During all this time she’s learned quite a bit because when she started out she didn’t know anything because she’d never worked at this type of activity before. She enjoys her work very much because she can manage her own time and also generate income for her home without having to leave home. Before starting this business she depended on her spouse’s income but now she can earn extra income and contribute to her household’s economy. She has many plans and objectives but for the moment all she wants to do is stock up on some things the store needs. This will be MFP loan #3. She’s very happy to know that she’ll have financial support because she’ll feel surer about advancing with her business this way. On her part she commits to make her payments punctually like she did with previous loans. Besides, she’s very happy to belong to her communal bank because they are all very responsible and mutually supportive. She will use the requested 2000 soles to buy merchandise and groceries to better stock her store with a wider variety of products.
