A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase more cement to make bricks.

Enma's story

Enma is 44 years old. She lives with her partner, Victor, who is 49 and they have two children. They live in their own home located in the district of Pichari. Enma is an enterprising woman who makes brick blocks because they are very expensive on the market. She undertook this business in order to offer a more affordable price than the competition. At first, she bought a small molding machine and began making these blocks. Gradually, the business grew and she became well-known in the market. She is happy with the work that she is doing and dreams of being a successful business woman in the VRAE (River Apurímac and River Ene Valley) region. She says that opportunities are given but we must know how to take advantage of them. This is her second loan with MFP and she is committed to making her payments on time. With the 4,000 nuevos soles, she will purchase more cement to construct the brick blocks.
