A loan of $1,125 helped buy products to stock her business.

Sadid's story

Hard-working and persistent, that is Mrs. Sadid, 32 years old and married to Raúl. She is the mother of two children: Alex, who is 10, and Linda, who is 3 years old. They are her motive for working so hard. Due to certain events in her life four years ago, she began to work selling groceries. At the beginning, her store was not very stable because she did not have counters, shelves, or display windows to be able to display her products. For that reason, she, along with her husband's help, saved the income from the store and little by little was able to invest in counters. Despite the difficult circumstances she has experienced, today her business is visited by customers that Sadid attracted with her good customer service.

This will be her fourth loan with MFP, and she will be very responsible, like always. She will remain on good terms with her community bank because they are responsible people. With the 3,000 nuevos soles, she will be able to provide a greater variety of groceries for her store so that her business is always attracting customers.
