A loan of $575 helped to buy a wider variety of fish.


Zeun's story

Zeun, 20, is a kind, hard-working entrepreneur who is single and has no children. He lives with his parents whom he supports, and wants to give them a better lifestyle. Zeun's work consists of buying and selling fish. Seasonly, he travels to different parts of Perú to buy a variety of fish. Ever since he has been working in the business he has learned a lot, especially about how to establish new markets, which he is doing while facing new challenges in his life.

He has been in business for six months and is very enthusiastic about being able to continue knowing that he will be able to invest a little more this time. He enjoys what he does because he gets to travel and meet new people, who he learns from and with whom he opens new markets where he sells different products. Business is going well and he wants to continue working toward his goal of expanding little by little.

This is his third loan through MFP and he is counting on your support to help him meet his goals. He is committed to paying back the loan on time just as he has done with his previous loans. He likes being part of his communal bank because all the members are very united and responsible. He plans to use the 1,500 PEN to buy a wider variety of fish since he has orders for new species.
