A loan of $950 helped to buy appliances for her shop.

Marleni's story

Marleni is 25 years old. She and her husband Andres, 34, have two children. They live in a home they own in the district of Llochegua. Marleni is a great salesperson. She sells appliances in her store, which is in the Llochegua market. She is able to keep up her sales because she's always bringing in new products as technology advances and client needs change. Marleni doesn't always make her sales in her shop; sometimes she goes out to the markets in the villages nearby, where she goes door to door with her younger son, who helps her look after the merchandise. Marleni is happy with her business because it allows her to make a living. Thanks to the business, she is building a new house, where she plans to open a new appliance store in the future and keep growing as a businessperson.This is her second loan with MFP, and she is committed to making her payments on time. She will invest the 2,500 nuevos soles in buying new merchandise.
