Gerly's story

Gerly, 32 years old, is a very generous, loving and hard working woman. She lives with her spouse Uri, 33 years old, with whom she has four children: Willy 15, Ariana 10, Jim 5 and Harold who was born just days ago. They are the reason that she works so hard, to bring a better quality of life to her family. Gerly makes a living selling juices. She starts her work very early in the morning as she goes to the market looking for the freshest and juiciest fruit, so that her customers can enjoy the delicious fruit juices that she prepares. She sells from her home, where she has a table and a place where she can cut and juice the fruit. She has been doing this work for 5 years and has been working alone. She feels happy that it allows her to generate income by working half of the day and having the rest of the time to dedicate to her family and her home. She hopes to continue working and growing her business. This is loan number 10 with MFP, and she is very happy knowing that she has this financial support which will guarantee that she will be able to continue to work without worries. On her part, she is committed to being on time in her payments, same as she has been with previous loans. She will use the requested amount of 3000 soles to buy ingredients, supplies and fruit for the making of more juices.
