A loan of $1,125 helped to buy a freezer so that she can set up a grocery store.

Olga's story

Olga is 38 years old and lives with her partner, 40-year-old Wilfredo. The couple have two beautiful children. They live together in their own home which is located in Pichari district. Olga is happy with the work that she carries out. She grows coffee and bananas and puts in a lot of hard work and commitment. She works together with her husband who always supports her with her farming work but also sometimes goes out to work as a lumberjack which makes him additional income. During harvest time, Olga hires staff so that she can gather in her produce more easily. In the future, she would like to open a store where she can sell basic household products.

This will be Olga's second loan from MFP and she pledges to make her repayments on time. She will use the 3,000 soles to buy a freezer.
