A loan of $375 helped to stock her food business.

Morayma's story

Morayma, 22, is an enterprising woman, hard-working, happy and welcoming. She is separated from her husband and lives with her mother and 2-year old son. She operates a snacks business in a space just outside her mother's front door. She started the business a year ago with money she borrowed from her sister. She and her mother also sell prepared meals. They have a purpose-built stand in front of the house from which they sell the meals and they set up a grill on Sundays to make and sell grilled chicken. That business has been up and running for 5 years. Morayma likes the business because it gives her something to do and brings in the income she needs to support her son. The hardest thing about the business, she says, is getting up at dawn to organize the day's work. She's not complaining, though, because she sees that her income has grown along with her efforts and she wants to continue the business and grow it. She wants to sell soft drinks with the snacks she sells and she needs a refrigerator to start. This will be her second MFP loan and she tells us that she is grateful for the help she's received to grow her business. She likes her community bank, too, and says that its members are responsible and supportive. Morayma will use this 1000 new soles loan to buy wholesale supplies of soft drinks for her food business.
