Francis's story

Francis is a hardworking and ambitious 20 year-old young woman. She is single and has no children. She lives at her parents' house with whom she works with daily in order to be able to have a better quality of life. Francis' job consists in the sale of food, specifically in the sale of fast food. They have a restaurant where she sells grilled chicken alongside her parents. She wakes up very early and leaves for the market with her mother in search of fresh and nutritious products and meat that she uses for her dishes with the intent of offering her distinguished clients the best. In her home in the afternoon, she is in charge of getting everything ready so that at 6pm she can begin to sell her delicious and well-cooked plates of roasted chicken. She has been doing this job for over two years, including its administration. It is going quite well since their earnings have allowed her to reflect on the difficult times that she has had before and that she has been able to overcome. Her goal is to be able to expand her business, but at the moment she hopes to consolidate and be able to grow little by little. This will be her third credit with MFP. She is very happy to know that she will have financial support which will help her advance with her business. She also promises to again fulfill her payments like she did in the past. With the solicited amount of 3000 soles, she will purchase materials to improve the conditions of her establishment and stock up on non-perishables in her garage in case the price of these products increase in the future.
