Demetria's story

Demetria, 30, is a pleasant, modest, and above all very hard-working woman. She lives in her own house with her husband Aurelio, 31, and her beloved son Jack, 9, whom she wants to give a better future. Demetria's grocery store is one of the busiest in her town. Her great charisma and pleasant manner have made her store the one preferred by her neighbors, who do not hesitate to make their purchases very early because they know it is the first store to open and the last to close. What she likes most about her work is advising her consumers about the quality and variety of each product. She has been doing this work for ten years and she considers the most difficult thing to be staying in her store all day long waiting for customers, since her income depends on this. Thanks to her business, she has been able to buy a variety of goods for her home. This is her first loan with MFP. She is very happy to know that once again she will have the support of the lenders to continue prospering. With the 1,500 PEN she will buy more supplies for her grocery store, such as bags of rice, sugar, and milk, among other products.
