Liliana's story

30-year-old Doris is a good, kind and hardworking woman. She lives with 60-year-old Dimas, with whom she has five children - Adriana, aged 14, Susan, aged 8, Deydra, aged 4, Patrick, aged 3 and the youngest, Fernando, aged 1 and a half. They live in a house she owns and she works very hard to improve her family's living conditions.
Every day, after taking care of her home chores, Doris goes out to the streets of her town where she searches for new customers or closes deals with the old customers, with whom she has been working for a long time. She sells cleaning products, both for house cleaning and for personal hygiene. She does business on credit or cash, depending on how the customer wishes to obtain her excellent products. She has been in this line of work for five years and she does it alone. It's going very well, since she gained a lot of customers along the way, thanks to the excellent service she provides. She's always friendly and facilitates everything for the customers when they purchase one of her products. She hopes to continue having the same success she has had so far and to keep on expanding her business. In the future she would like to set up a grocery store so that she can increase her merchandise and make higher sales. This will be her second loan with MFP, so she hopes to get your collaboration in order to keep on pursuing her goals. On the other hand, she pledges to make her repayments in a timely and responsible fashion. Furthermore, she's very glad to be a part or her communal bank, since all of the members are responsible and very supportive people. With the requested loan of 1.500 soles, she will purchase more merchandise in order to continue her work and to offer a larger quantity and variety of products to her customers.
