A loan of $750 helped to purchase cement and paint to fix the front of her home.


Alfonsa's story

Alfonsa is a patient 64-year-old woman with a very cozy home made of good materials. She lives with her husband and their 5 children. Alfonsa most enjoys tilling the soil and growing cocoa plants, which is a business she knows well. Every day of the week, especially in the mornings after preparing breakfast, she goes to the fields. She has around 30 years experience marketing the cocoa fruits to the collection centers in her area of Palmapampa. This work is done with the help of her husband and children, who strive to succeed. Alfonsa is happy with what she does, and thanks her parents for teaching her the work that provides her financial support.

Alfonsa wants to fix the front of her house, so that her family can be more comfortable. This will be her 7th loan with MFP and her duty is to continue to be very responsible client, and she would like to continue to take out subsequent loans. She gets on very well with her loan partners and she has a lot of respect for them.

With the 2,000 soles, Alfonsa will buy materials such as cement, paint, etc so that she can fix her home.
