Eudosia's story

Eudosia is a 62 year old widow. She lives in her own home with her only daughter, Mercedes, who is 23 years old and whom she gives the best to provide her with a good future. Eudosia is a hard-working woman, working in sales and trying to get ahead. She is a saleswoman and has a general store in her community. Eudosia's store is frequented quite often by her neighbors because of the good service she provides.

She opens the doors of her business very early to be ready to receive her first customers. She knows the variety of products in her store leaves customers no doubt they will buy from her. What she most enjoys about her job is talking to her customers, and this is one of her skills she uses to gain more customers. She has worked at this business for 25 years and thinks the hardest thing about it is staying on her feet all day. She will use the loan to buy more goods to stock her store. This will be her first loan with MFP and she is proud to know she can count on the support of the lenders to keep working. She thanks her community bank for letting them work and promises to be responsible with her loan payments. With the 1,500 nuevos soles she will buy more goods to stock her store.
