A loan of $575 helped to buy stock staple merchandise for her store.


Marisa's story

Marisa, 28, is a single mother; she has three children in her care. She lives in the beautiful Ayacucho jungle in the community of Comumpiari where she owns her house. Six months ago Marisa started to sell beverages like soft-drinks and sodas. Her main customers are people from her community and people who come to visit the town of Comumpiari. Thanks to this business she can cover her children’s educational costs since she’s both mother and father to her beloved children.

She’s now well-established in her business and would like to expand the store introducing new products but in larger amounts so that she can sell at both wholesale and retail. What she most likes about her work is that the people encourage her to continue forward and she considers the most difficult part of it running out of beverages. This is why she calls on lenders to request a loan that will help her work with tranquility and to be able to support her children.

This will be her first MFP loan. She is grateful to the institution for the opportunity it provides her and she commits to meet her installments. She will use the requested 1500 new soles to buy more staple items to stock her store.
